C.A.S.T. (Community and Schools Together) is a joint intervention project of the Huntington Youth Bureau and Tri CYA. C.A.S.T. is designed to help at-risk youth make positive choices through educating and empowering youth and their families. C.A.S.T. is an outgrowth of the Town of Huntington Supervisor's Gang Prevention Task Force composed of law enforcement, schools, elected officials, The Huntington Youth Bureau, Tri CYA local community youth agencies and mental health agencies and community members. The purpose of C.A.S.T. is to provide intensive outreach and case management to at-risk youth in grades 5 through 9 and their families in the Town of Huntington. The C.A.S.T. workers are available evenings and after school as well as during school hours to provide support to these youth and their families in the form of counseling, connection to area resources and follow-ups with home and school. C.A.S.T. services are provided free of charge to youth and their families. The goals of C.A.S.T. are to provide youth in the program with positive alternatives including:
