Co-ed and Gender-Based Programs
Fresh Start Thinking
An evidence-based program for integrated cognitive behavior
change program for youth. Facilitated group settings and activities to support cognitive restructuring, social skills development, a goal-setting workshop, and problem solving skills development.
A structured support group for girls which integrates relational theory, resiliency
practices, and skills training in a format that increases positive connections, self-esteem, and personal strength in girls.
Young men gain the vital
opportunity to address masculine definitions and behaviors and build their capacities to
find their innate value and create good lives - individually and collectively.
School-Based and Community-Centered Programs
School and Community Center programs connect students, parents, and school staff to resources that improve the student's experience and outcomes. Through promising practices and evidence-based models, we provide intervention and prevention programs that give youth an opportunity to navigate personal and academic obstacles, learn pro-social skills, and make healthy lifestyle choices.
Priority was typically given to youth who are deemed at-risk for dropping out and/or being expelled due to issues with truancy, alleged drug or alcohol use, anger and impulse control, or other behavioral concerns. Once enrolled in any of our programs, youth have continual support opportunities through both on-campus and community mentoring activities that offer adult guidance and structured activities.
