Baden Street Settlement is the host agency for the Metro Council for Teen Potential (MCTP), a coalition of youth-serving organizations that promote youth development and health in the city’s most stressed neighborhoods.
MCTP supports 35 member agencies, schools and health centers to implement strength-based and evidence-based approaches to ensure youth success and to prevent teen pregnancy and substance abuse. MCTP works with the City of Rochester, Planned Parenthood, Rochester City School District and Threshold Center for Youth to implement life skills programs, youth arts and youth leadership activities. MCTP engages youth to develop social marketing messages to promote healthy behaviors, and partners with Family Resource Centers of Crestwood to deliver the Family Talk series for parents.
