Stop Now and Plan (SNAP®) Program

Stop Now and Plan (SNAP®) Program is an evidence-based, cognitive-behavioral model that serves as a “front-end” resource for at-risk youth ages 6-11 and their families.  SNAP® helps children and their parents learn how to effectively manage their emotions, behavioral issues and ‘keep problems small’.  The SNAP® program provides youth and their families strategies to increase healthy Pro-social and decision-making skills that will help the youth stay in school and out of trouble by making better choices throughout the 13-week program. Our SNAP® team works with each family to assess challenges and problems and develop an action plan.  Youth and their families participate in engaging activities such as group discussions, role-playing, interactive games, and self-reflection to address topics including dealing with anger, learning how to cope and practice self-control, engaging in problem solving and learning not to bully and how to prevent bullying. The primary goal of the SNAP® program is to help youth stop and think before they act while empowering them to create improved family relationships, positive social interactions, and success in school.

We currently operate the SNAP® Program in St. Lucie County (Circuit 19) through a partnership with the program funders the Florida Network of Youth and Families and the Department of Juvenile Justice.
