Youth and Family Training Institute


The Youth and Family Training Institute (YFTI), an NCCRS member since January 2015, was established in 2007 as a part of the University of Pittsburgh and Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic in Pittsburgh, PA. YFTI was formed to assist Pennsylvania’s Department of Public Welfare, Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services Children’s Bureau in bringing High Fidelity Wraparound (HFW) to the 67 counties within the Commonwealth. The Youth and Family Training Institute’s Advisory Board includes youth, family and system/provider representation. A director and staff of statewide coaches, trainers, and an evaluation team ensure fidelity to the HFW model.  

The Youth and Family Training Institute staff train, coaches, credentials, evaluates and monitors the High Fidelity Wraparound workforce in Pennsylvania. Goals of High Fidelity Wraparound include supporting the youth and family as they work to meet the needs they have prioritized; improve their ability and confidence to manage their own services and supports; and develop or strengthen their own natural support system over time. In order to develop and evaluate HFW in Pennsylvania, the Youth and Family Training Institute utilizes the HFW Theory of Change, HFW Principles and Phases, and training and evaluation methods developed by the National Wraparound Initiative.

Students and admissions representatives please note: NCCRS does not provide transcripts. Transcript requests and inquiries should be directed to the organization offering the courses, examinations or apprenticeship. See the Source of Official Student Records in the sidebar near the top right side of this page.
