Wyman’s Teen Outreach Program® is a comprehensive, evidence-based strategy meant to prepare youth for a successful future. Teens participate in clubs once a week for activities, discussion and volunteer service learning.

The program has proven to reduce teen pregnancy and keep teenagers in school.
TOP has three essential goals:
