PIPY: Prevention/Intervention Program for Youth
The Safe Schools/Healthy Students Initiative is about systems change. That's a term that gets thrown around quite a bit, but SS/HS has found ways to make it more than a buzzword. The Prevention/Intervention Program for Youth (PIPY) is proof of that.
PIPY is a program at Jimmy Carter Middle School that brings together administrators, teachers, the School Resource Officer, counselors, case managers from Bernalillo County Youth Services Center (Juvenile Detention), and Juvenile Probation. The program has different organizations all talking to each other and working toward the common goal of helping students overcome challenges and succeed in their education.
