The New Jersey School Based Youth Services Program (SBYSP) is sponsored by the Department of Children and Families to help young people navigate the adolescent years and graduate healthy and drug-free.
School Based Youth Services (SBYS) came to the Cape May County Technical High School in the spring of 2006. We serve 100% of the students at Tech. Educational presentations and interactive workshops involve the entire student body. Approximately 75% of students receive individual support at some time during their high school career.
