Milestones Project

The Milestones Project

The Milestones Project is designed to identify young people who are extremely high risk for violence either in schools, their homes, or within the community. The goal for the project is to involve parents or guardians with Milestones Project partners and community resources in interventions designed to prevent such violence.

This guide is a collaborative effort of the following:

● Public and Charter Schools
● Juvenile Court
● Local Law Enforcement
● West Yavapai Guidance Clinic
● Verde Valley Guidance Clinic
● DES/Child Protective Services
● Community Counts
● You, the Parent!
