The YFC’s Adult Prevention Program provides adults throughout McHenry County with the opportunity to improve their skills and their capacity to access the different resources available in McHenry County and the surrounding area.
Educational opportunities include English as a Second Language classes, educational sessions to improve parenting skills, and informational sessions on issues pertinent to families, such as mental health, healthcare and strategies to build resilience factors and reduce adverse childhood experiences.
Parents of youth in our Youth Program stay engaged with our Youth Program through events, surveys, and meetings. Once a year, parents are surveyed to request information and feedback on staff and programs and to anonymously state any needs, concerns, or questions.
