9th Grade and Up
We emphasize the importance of academic achievement, self awareness, social responsibility and setting goals for future aspirations. We seek to assist youth in achieving academic professional and personal success by providing a safe, supportive and nurturing environment through a variety of teen-driven programming.
Teen Services uses a holistic approach to meet each participants’ needs. By meeting the client where they are, we can then assess what services are appropriate to best serve the participant. Whether a participant is interested in school assistance, work placement or simply recreation, POWER-UP encompasses the resources to meet these needs. Teen Services also utilizes a strengths perspective approach with each participant and or family who walks in the door. We highlight a participant’s strengths and use this as motivation to strengthen and build upon other areas in which a participant may feel deficient in. We provide intensive one on one services as well as group supportive services aimed at enhancing a participant’s
academic, professional and personal areas. Services are provided by qualified, approachable, community-orientated, and knowledgeable staff who have backgrounds in Social Work, Education, Counseling, Physical Fitness, Sports Management, and Culinary Arts.
