SWAMPSCOTT, MA – March 16, 2018 – In support of Longwood Care’s behavioral health and therapeutic youth mentoring services, Salem Five has provided a donation of $500. With this donation it is made possible for therapeutic youth mentoring to become a critical component of community services made available to children and families.
Therapeutic youth mentoring is designed to help children (including teens and adolescents) learn to better understand and communicate feelings, relate to others and build positive relationships. This program is a community-based service of structured, one-to-one mentoring sessions via a mentor and is offered in the locations most conductive to the acquisition of skills, including the youth’s home and a variety of community sites to provide an opportunity for skill building through experience.
Mentorship includes interpersonal and problem solving skills, emotional and behavioral control, and improved communication among peers, adults and family. Longwood Care is dedicated to offer youth mentoring within nearby communities for clients who do not meet private requirements as well as those who carry commercial policies for whom this service is inaccessible.
