ABHConnecticut Association of NonprofitsCourage to SpeakRYASAP

community partnership


RYASAP is an urban/suburban youth and community development coalition serving the Greater Bridgeport region, comprised of Bridgeport, Easton/Redding, Fairfield, Monroe, Stratford and Trumbull with local and statewide programs in juvenile justice advocacy, young adult leadership, and asset-based youth community development training and consultation. RYASAP's mission is to create healthy communities free of the harm caused by substance abuse, crime and violence. It is RYASAP's strong belief that insidious problems such as substance abuse, crime, and violence can be most effectively addressed when people work together and form nurturing relationships at all levels of the community.

To achieve this goal, RYASAP utilizes an asset-based youth and community development approach through which the assets and capacities of youth and adult citizens, volunteer associations and institutions are identified and mobilized for community change.
