Our Vision

Individualized support that meets each child’s unique needs in order to increase resilience through a strong community web of coordinated and available opportunities and resources.

What we know to be true

Prevention science has shown that improving a child’s sense of empowerment and purpose, engagement in the community, and positive relationships with adults and peers leads to long-term positive outcomes.

How We Support Schools and Students

imgoingplaces.org (or IGP) is an opportunity, a collaborative approach that helps our Adams County youth succeed. It’s a different approach to a youth program. We don’t tell them what to do. Instead, we work to redirect students from whatever it is that’s holding them back from their own success.

We help them build a reasonable and achievable plan:

Including tools and resources to keep them on course

The name may be familiar; many kids already associate imgoingpl aces.org with a fun, successful outreach campaign. Now, it’s a complete program for those teens who fall under the radar, the average student who often gets overlooked, a young person whose choices are going to cause serious consequences, and most importantly, an option for the youth you care about but Don’t know how to help.
