Intervene to help prevent neglect, abuse and exploitation of children and promote, support, and encourage the physical, mental, and overall well-being of children;
Help youth set goals and overcome problems to avoid dropping out of school, dependency, unemployment, delinquency, poverty, and an inability to reach their full potential; and
Guide youth in short and long term career exploration and planning in order to enter the labor force and pursue enrollment in college, the military or other post-secondary education.
