Youth in Action is a program the San Luis Obispo County Probation Department facilitates for the Paso Robles Unified School District and the Lucia Mar School District. The program empowers youth ages 10-18, to realize their own potential and build the strength and resilience to resist against gang involvement. The school based 18 week program teaches students to reduce violence through effective communication, resolve conflict peacefully, think critically and stand up for their beliefs. The program engages in classroom activities along with field trips in our community and community service projects. The Probation Officers assigned to this program do a great job working with the youth to ensure they are receiving the most out of the program.
