Adolescent Resource Pathways

Chesterfield Adolescent Resource Pathways (CARP) focuses on community-based, collaborative and early-intervention efforts for youth involved in the juvenile court system through various programs.

The program environment provides consistency, positive relationships, structure and limits, and respect for basic rights.

  • Increase commitment to the education process
  • Increase positive skill-building opportunities
  • Increase protective factors
  • Limit opportunities to commit new offenses during high-risk hours
  • Reduce risk factors
  • Reduce substance abuse
