Westfield Youth Assistance kicks off tutoring program


The Westfield Youth Assistance Program (YAP) has officially launched its tutoring program at Westfield Middle School.  Westfield YAP is a program created by the City of Westfield, the Westfield Washington Schools and the Hamilton County Probation Division, and the goal is to identify youth in need of assistance prior to becoming part of the growing juvenile and criminal justice system.  The program identifies youth heading down the wrong path and provides treatment for the entire family ultimately ensuring that the child begins heading down the right path. 
The YAP Tutoring Program Committee is looking for High School Juniors and Seniors (16 years of age+) and or adults who can give a weekly commitment during the school year.  The sessions occur every Thursday from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Westfield Middle School and 3:15 to 4:15 p.m. at several Elementary Schools.   
To enroll your child or to volunteer, contact Cindy Olson at the Westfield YAP office at 804-3191.
