During Dominick's senior year of high school things started spiraling out of control. A series of poor decisions led him to become a client of the United Way funded YES program at Tykes & Teens. The YES program gives local pre-teens and adolescents who are struggling with alcohol, drugs, or other dangerous behaviors the chance to make long term change. Through a combination of individual, family, and group counseling, teens learn the coping skills necessary to manage peer pressure, anxiety, depression and other challenges without resorting to unhealthy behavior. Thanks in part to the support he received from this program, Dominick graduated high school and is currently attending Florida State University.

United Way supporters helped put Dominick and thousands of other Martin County youth on the path to fulfilling their dreams. That's what it means to LIVE UNITED.
