Why Try

The Why Try program is a strength-based approach to helping youth overcome their challenges and improve outcomes in areas of truancy, behavior, and academics. It is based on empirical principles, including Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Social and Emotional Intelligence, and multi-sensory learning. The basic premise of Why Try is to teach social and emotional principles to youth in a way they can understand and remember through a series of ten visual analogies. Each visual teaches a discrete principle which are then reinforced by music and physical activities. The visual, auditory, and body-kinesthetic learning styles are all addressed. The program also comes with pre and post testing. The mission of Why Try is to help people achieve opportunity, freedom, and self-respect using education and interventions that motivate and create positive change. This statement aligns directly with CAPPA's mission.
