Greentree Adolescent Program (GAP)
The Greentree Adolescent Program provides young males a therapeutic environment in which they can address their trauma history and develop into young men who can positively integrate into society and give back to their communities.

GAP youth participating in the Heart & Soul BakeryThe Greentree Adolescent Program is a high-intensity residential community that prepares traumatized, victimized, and poorly socialized adolescent males to be productive members of society. These young men benefit from living in a structured residential community within a diverse, urban neighborhood which hosts one of America’s best performing public schools, Walt Whitman High School.

We believe each GAP resident deserves the right to build a collaborative support system as he increases his social and emotional stability, develops life skills, and enhances his capacity for interdependence while preparing to return to his own family and community or to an alternative network of community support (e.g., foster home, independent living program, college, or military service).
