Youth Mentoring

We work with at-risk youth and adolescents in their homes and in their communities to provide role modeling, therapeutic recreation, behavior management and modification, independent living skills training, tutoring, community integration and many other services. The young adults in our program are experiencing issues including academic difficulties, self-esteem issues, impulsive behaviors, physical isolation, verbal or physical aggression and substance abuse. They need to learn social and independent living skills and may be involved with a negative peer group. These young adults truly benefit from working with a mentor.
