Life Skills Development.
Our Powered for Success program helps at-risk youth understand the importance of making good decisions and developing good habits. Life is full of transitions, and students and young adults need guidance making the right choices at crucial stages during those transitions. The challenges that at-risk youth face today are tougher than at any time in history: academic stress, parent communication, media bombardment, dating, abuse, bullying, addictions, depression, and peer pressure, just to name a few. The choices at-risk youth make while navigating these challenges can make or break their futures
Counseling & Mental Health Education.
Our Powered for Success program provides counseling services and mental health education. We have collaborated with mental health professionals to offer support groups and individual counseling for at-risk youth and their families. We aims to foster self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills and responsible decision-making. We help at-risk youth to develop socially acceptable learned behavior that enables a person to interact effectively with others and to avoid socially unacceptable responses. We have informal therapy talk sessions and workshops to promote mental health education and to help end the stigma around mental illness in minority communities.
