Purpose: The recipient proposes to develop and deliver an intervention program called "Live Your Magic'' for youth 12-17 years old who are involved in the youth justice system and have substance abuse issues. Youth participating in Live Your Magic programming will work with mentors to develop effective thinking skills to explore how to reduce barriers keeping them from a drug and crime-free lifestyle, to reflect on past attitudes and behaviors, to demonstrate positive self-talk and to develop the courage to risk a new way of living. In addition, the mentors will ensure that youth understand and comply with their court and correctional conditions; are referred to appropriate community services such as Legal Aid, income assistance, housing, employment, education, recreation and health services; and, are supported with realistic information about referrals to drug and alcohol treatment, after-care and other self-help programs.
