Wyman’s Teen Outreach Program® (TOP®) promotes the positive development of adolescents through curriculum-guided, interactive group discussions; positive adult guidance and support; and community service learning.
TOP is delivered by trained adult facilitators across a school year to groups of teens (called “TOP Clubs”). TOP is designed to meet the developmental needs of middle and high school teens and can be implemented in a variety of settings, including in-school, after-school, through community-based organizations or in systems and institutional settings, including residential facilities.
TOP curriculum is focused on key topics related to adolescent health and development, including building social, emotional, and life skills; developing a positive sense of self; and connecting with others.
Research shows that teens who have participated in TOP experience more positive outcomes than their peers. These teens are ready to become the next generation of leaders.
Wyman’s National Network of youth-serving organizations replicates teen-centered evidence based programs and engage in high quality adult training services. Programs implemented by National Network Partners positively impact the lives of over 25,000 teens each year.
