"Claudette C'Faison is a pioneer in designing, facilitating and administrating innovative programs that provide emotional and mental health services and education in high risk communities. She started her career in 1977, managing the runaway homeless youth program for the NYC Department of Youth Services; later she expanded her focus to include parents, educators, and youth service providers. In 1985, Claudette became the National Director of the Breakthrough Foundation's Mentoring Program based in San Francisco. Before returning to New York, she trained over 3,000 volunteers and youth throughout the United States. In 1989, she co-founded Youth At-Risk, Inc. (YAR) where she currently serves as the Executive Director. In 1997, Mrs. Faison successfully merged the U.S. cities that incorporate youth at-risk curricula into a international consortium, Global Partners for Youth (GPY). She is a GPY board member and founded the GPY Leadership Training Academy, in which she serves as faculty. Claudette is an international training consultant and speaker, and has become an expert resource for organizational development of mentorship programs and transformative educational methodology."
