8 Our Mission The mission of Hanover Township Youth and Family Services is the prevention of juvenile delinquency and the promotion of positive development in young people. This is accomplished by providing services which help to strengthen families, to provide outreach to children and teens at risk of school failure and delinquency, and to contribute to the building up of a healthier community for all Township youth

10 Key elements to the Youth Development approach are the following:  Youth are viewed as a valued and respected asset to society;  Policies and programs focus on the evolving developmental needs and tasks of adolescents, and involve youth as partners rather than clients;  Families, schools and communities are engaged in developing environments that support youth;  Adolescents are involved in activities that enhance their competence, connections, character, confidence and contribution to society;  Adolescents are provided an opportunity to experiment in a safe environment and to develop positive social values and norms; and  Adolescents are engaged in activities that promote self- understanding, self-worth, and a sense of belonging and resiliency.
