School-Based Outreach

School-Based Outreach

School based services are designed to improve a youth’s attendance and academic performance as well as teach prosocial skills such as problem solving, peer refusal, and anger management. This service strives to promote each youth’s self-efficacy, competence, resilience, and belief in the future.

The program will:

  • Teach problem solving, decision making, goal setting, and resiliency skills through quick interactive lessons in the school and community
  • Establish collaborative relationships with outside agencies (Local Mental Health Authority, School District, Law Enforcement Agencies, DCFS, and Probation) to keep youth accountable and educate families about what resources are available in the community
  • Mentor select youth and their families teaching skills such as positive-discipline, routine, responsibility, time management, rules and rewards, communication and creating wholesome traditions
