SCYAP is incorporated as the South Carolina Youth Advocate Program, Inc. within the State of South Carolina. The general management of the company is vested in the authority of the company’s Board of Directors.

We believe that quality staff is essential to the quality of services. Managerial, administrative, program and support staff positions are identified to meet the company needs. Front-line or direct care positions are assigned to programs/services according to staff to client ratio requirements and needs, contractual or other regulatory requirements, and educational and experience requirements.

Regional offices are strategically placed throughout the State in Columbia, Charleston, Florence, Greenville, and Myrtle Beach, and a satellite office of the Charleston Region is maintained in Beaufort. Having regional and satellite offices throughout the state allows us to become intricately involved in the local communities that we serve and to maintain youth as close to their home community as possible, when out-of-home placement is necessary.
