Youth Peer Mentor Program graduates aim to help others
Eleven youth from the NCYCC graduated from a five-week training program that provides recovery support to peers with substance use disorders.

VYCF duffers hack it up for community restoration.
The 11th Annual VYCF Charity Golf Tournament netted more than two thousand dollars for Ventura non-profits Parents of Murdered Children Ventura County, Women of Substance Men of Honor, who help youth once they age out of foster care; and the Citizens Advisory Committee, which creates scholarships for VYCF youth. Unusually cool and overcast weather in a setting that seemed more like Scotland than sunny Ojai failed to dim the spirits of the assembled. Those included former and current VYCF staff, friends and family, who played a “best ball” tournament that resulted in many low scores under par.
