The youth at Broward Youth Treatment Center are persistent and focused academically as well as socially. While working with a diverse group of young men from different areas, they often have disagreements. As a result, we have them participate in team building exercises, such as basketball. 

The youth created t-shirts for Juneteenth and were rewarded with a barbecue for fantastic behavior. We all had a great time and enjoyed the creativity of all the youth. 

For the past couple of months, the youth have had difficulty adjusting to virtual school. Now, the youth are putting their best foot forward when completing their schoolwork. Not only are they completing their schoolwork, but they have started to assist each other. The potential graduates are holding each other accountable, and are constantly providing motivation.

The Broward Youth Treatment Center (BYTC) serves 40 males between the ages of 13 and 18, in a non-secure residential commitment program that provides therapeutic services to address all behavioral issues, as well as mental health and substance abuse issues. Services are provided 24 hours per day, seven days per week. Contact Broward Youth Treatment Center at 954-962-1088 or visit
