Youth Peer Mentor Program

In 2019, Continuity Consulting (CCI) launched the Youth Peer Mentor Program (YPMP) with the Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) to train justice-involved youth to provide recovery support to peers and assist them with their SUD/OUD and rehabilitative challenges.

Continuity Consulting is expanding YPMP to include transitional age youth (TAY) and other justice-involved youth throughout California. Continuity Consulting will deliver a modified program using a hybrid model of asynchronous training, video mentoring, and an interactive, online community.
