Welcome to the Rhapsody in Youth and Let’s Talk Program!

Rhapsody in Youth is a short-term self-esteem building program designed to expose youth to many of the social issues and topics which may affect them. The program emphasizes self-worth, social consciousness and personal enrichment.

Through educational activities and open discussions, participants are able to express their feelings, to receive assistance in making socially-acceptable decisions and to find alternative solutions to negative behavior. Rhapsody sessions are designed to provide both adjudicated and diverted juveniles with information and resources to develop positive decision-making skills. Weekly topics include: anger management, substance abuse prevention, life skills, manners, youth & the law, peer pressure, conflict resolution, job skills, prisoner visits, etc.

Juveniles may be required to attend selected or all sessions. Local agencies such as the Adolescent & Family Enrichment Council, Rowan Regional Medical Center, and DayMark Recovery Services provided facilitators for some sessions; others are led by Youth Services Bureau staff. Rhapsody is funded by the N.C. Department of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention.
