     Using concepts from research-based programs, such as Why Try?, Kids Connection, and Challenge Course, participants work together to build a sense of

belongingness, increase self confidence, improve social skills and problem solving, raise self awareness, and learn what it takes to earn freedom, opportunity, and

self respect. The major message of the group is"I am likable, unique, valuable, and capable; I have people who care about me; I can reach my goals; I will make safe and healthy

decisions; and I believe I am worthwhile." Experiential learning activities and Why Try? pogramming allow participants to learn and practice leadership skills. Using behavior

modification contracting and "group promises" generated by class participants, group members practice sills and behaviors needed to be successfuin the classroom setting.

Curriculum is research based.

Youth and Adolescent Counseling

Using a systems approach to counseling, adolescents and youth work with their families to find creative solutions for mastering challenges they encounter in daily living. 

Families with children acting out behaviorally often find that everyone in the family must support them in their efforts to change. We believe no child wants to fail, feel sad, or disappoint others. We help children find keys that unlock doors to success and happiness.
