Why Try

Why Try is a part of Evidence-based Practices.

The Why Try Program is a strength-based approach to helping youth overcome their challenges and improve outcomes in the areas of truancy, behavior, and academics. Youth are taught social and emotional principles through a series of 10 pictures that teaches a discrete principle. These visuals are then reinforced by music and physical activities. 

The program addresses the following areas:

  • Academic Improvement
  • Attendance/Truancy
  • Counseling/Advisories/Coaches 
  • Literacy Development
  • Students with Disabilities
  • Study Skills
  • Substance Abuse
  • Life Skills Training
