SUPPORT SERVICES

Our Support & Transition Services Department includes a dedicated team of case managers and support staff who provide critically-needed counseling, and assistance to help our youth participants address the personal challenges they face, and remain enrolled in our work and education programs.

Intake & Case Management

Our case managers help corpsmembers focus on their individualized service plans, which include their personal, educational and occupational goals, and map out the practical steps they need to take in order to achieve them. We provide information to corpsmembers regarding other post-secondary education institutions, and assist them with applications and financial assistance forms. Case Managers provide resources and referrals for housing, child care, transportation, health care, legal services, and financial support to ensure program participants are able to succeed in our program and beyond.

Life Skills

Our Life Skills programming is designed to foster skills that are essential for full participation in everyday life. Through the services of case managers and community or business partners, corpsmembers can attend workshops throughout the year to support and encourage the development of skills needed to improve and maintain their lives. There are four key areas of life skills:

  • Personal Development: Anger management, conflict resolution, team building, etc.
  • Health and Wellbeing: Fitness and nutrition, family planning and safe sex practices, mental health, etc.
  • Financial Literacy: Basics of money, credit, and how to manage it
  • Work Readiness: Resume cover letters, interview skills, etc.
