High Quality Facilitation
Crucial to the TOP model are well trained and caring adult facilitators prepared to create engaging and empowering learning experiences.
Service & Leadership Opportunities
A unique aspect of TOP is the requirement that youth participate in at least 1 hour per week of community service learning activity, usually a project carried out by a TOP group working together to address a community problem of interest to them.
Weekly Peer Group Meetings
The TOP curriculum is focused on key topics related to adolescent health and development, including building social, emotional, and life skills; developing a positive sense of self; and connecting with others.
