YTEC serves San Francisco juvenile offender’s aged 14-18 who have a history of drug or alcohol abuse or mental illness. Most live in single-parent low-income households and many have been in out-of-home placements including foster care.

At the time of their enrollment, the majority have had multiple arrests, are truant from school, and experienced violence within their homes and/or neighborhoods. A disproportionate number are African American or Latino and multi-racial. Girls comprise approximately 40% of the total youth population.
