Aurora Youth Options Info:
Aurora Youth Options (AYO) works with middle and high school-aged youth and their families to navigate, connect and provide positive, individualized resources to help youth thrive.
How AYO works
Middle and high school youth who live or go to school in the City of Aurora are identified through community members in their schools and neighborhoods. Youth are assigned an AYO youth specialist who will assist the youth in finding resources and/or programs of interest to the youth. The AYO youth specialist will meet with youth and their families in their homes or other community locations and will assess the youth's needs through the Communities that Care (CtC) Youth Survey which assesses risk and protective factors. The CtC will guide the referral process.
An AYO youth specialist will work with each youth to offer referrals to existing community services and offer assistance for funding those services if other resources are unavailable. Youth who meet certain criteria will be referred to the AYO Mentor Program. The youth specialists will follow up with each youth and family to assure that they have received the services needed and will re-evaluate risk and protective factors at the six-month interval. Each participating youth is required to complete a post survey.
Starting the process:
Middle and high school students who are currently living in Aurora or going to school in Aurora.
