Therapeutic youth mentoring services are family centered, child focused and designed to help children learn to better understand and communicate feelings, relate to others and build positive relationships.
We offer solution-focused, strength-based, relational support services with an emphasis on improving social interactions and communication skills.
Therapeutic Youth Mentoring Provides:
- Interpersonal & problem solving skills
- Emotional & behavioral control
- Communication with both peers and adults
Therapeutic mentoring is a community-based service of structured, one-to-one mentoring sessions and takes place in the locations most conducive to the acquisition of skills, including the youth’s home and a wide variety of community sites to provide an opportunity for skill building through experiences in his or her natural environment. The therapeutic mentor works to model and educate the youth about the use of skills, motivate the youth to practice the skills, coach the youth to overcome obstacles, and help the youth and family evaluate and celebrate the youth’s progress.
