In collaboration with our community resource, SPIRITT Family Services, PHS is fortunate to have CLARO & SERENA on our campus.
What is CLARO?
(Challenging Latinos to AccessResources Opportunities)
This program uses positive role modeling and culturally appropriate support groups to challenge high-risk male youth to explore alternatives to prevent involvement in gangs, alcohol, other drug abuse, premature and/or irresponsible sexual activity and teen pregnancy. A basketball component provides positive after-school and weekend activities.
What is SERENA?
(Self-Empowerment Resources to Educate, Nuture and Advocate)
This program combines support groups, counseling and guidance as well as academic, social and recreational activities to promote cultural awareness and to help young females, ages 12 through 18 to define their identity and find solutions to many of the problems they may face.
