Our programs support the individual needs of each youth. We focus on the interests and strengths of every adolescent to instill a sense of accountability and self-worth.
LPYS believes in restoring our youth’s community connections through meaningful community service, structured family support, and collaboration with volunteers and like-minded organizations in La Plata County.
We accept referral requests from Municipal Court, Police, Sheriff Office, and Durango 9-R, Bayfield, and Ignacio school districts. We also will consider parent referrals.
