Neighborhood Intervention Program

Prevention and Early Intervention Services

The primary goal of NIP is to provide opportunities that enrich the social and educational experiences of youth in Dane County. Our mission is to intervene in the cycles of risk that are part of the natural stages of adolescent development. The program has developed a philosophical framework and curriculum called “Right Track”. The “Right Track” concept is a proven youth competency and asset building methodology. The goal of these services is to allow youth to become involved in a range of constructive recreational, social, and self-enhancement activities that will promote their own self-esteem and sense of involvement in their community.
