Specific challenges are identified, and appropriate resources are marshaled to enable youth to reach their potential as they mature. We use a trauma-informed approach in all facets of our operations. 360 embraces its responsibility to foster a climate where all youth can thrive.

360 Youth Services meets youth where they are. Clinicians, counselors and trained facilitators go into schools to reach students, and meet youth in one on one counseling sessions at 360's counseling offices to identify problems and create solutions. Counseling is being offered as an alternative to suspension from school, and more students are graduating rather than dropping out. Facilitators distribute information in local schools on the changing dangers of substance abuse, including drugs, alcohol and tobacco; reduction of use among students has been the result. 360 operates transitional housing for non-parenting youth experiencing homelessness; when the Continuum of Care held its annual count of homeless citizens, no youth ages 18-24 were found to be living on the street, in large part to 360's programs for homeless youth. A mentoring program matches trained community mentors with youth recommended by local civic groups and law enforcement, giving youth caring support.

360's counselors and program facilitators are educated in handling trauma-based challenges. All classroom facilitators and mentors undergo training prior to meeting students in classrooms. This agency has the backing of many official groups, including police departments, local schools, cities, and local civic groups, and that backing is both financial and in the form of volunteers. We are ready to expand our capability to provide programs for our youth in response to need by youth in our community.

All programs use formal evaluations to determine if progress is being made. Clinicians employ questionnaires as exist for their field of work, such as the YASI. Success in the transitional housing programs is gauged on guidelines set by state and federal agencies. Success in schools is measured on questionnaires administered to students in classrooms. The rate of graduation has gone up, and the number of homeless youth now employed and living in safe and stable housing are two ways to determine that 360's youth programs have a positive effect for not only youth but the community as a whole. As a result, there are many young adults today who are independent, self-supporting citizens because of their participation in 360's programs .

In almost 20 years of providing transitional housing to homeless youth, over 500 young men and women have come through the program and are now employed and are living in stable, safe housing. Nearly 25,000 youth in local schools are made aware of the dangers of substance abuse, and an increasing number are choosing not to use. Since starting onsite counseling at schools, over 200 students have chosen to seek counseling and not serve out-of-school suspension; the graduation rate among these students is rising, and the program is being piloted in many schools. Mentoring is on the increase; both schools and police departments know the value of a dedicated mentor for a youth in need, and 360 would like to expand the program into the community since it's a success for the youth in 360's housing. We would love to expand all of these programs since they're all positive approaches in the quest to assist youth in reaching their potential.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
