The Youth Truancy curriculum is designed to assist juveniles in discovering the relevance of school to their lives, and assists them in setting concrete goals for graduation. Participants explore the effects today’s choices have on their future, and learn techniques for helping them become successful in school. This curriculum emphasizes solutions that encourage regular attendance, and examines reasons for failing to attend school. The level 2 curriculum concludes with a joint session for youth to work directly with their parents to develop a shared plan for improving school attendance.

The Youth Truancy workbooks are available in English.
