imagesBVAYYOPLFamily Continuity’s Individual Youth Support Program provides innovative and supportive mentoring services to youth. Specially trained mentors are matched with children and young adults with similar skills and interests. Mentors work in close collaboration with both the youth and their parents/guardians. The purpose of the program is to help youth to develop the competencies they need for developmentally appropriate functioning in the community.

Services are strengths-based and designed to have the individual and family make decisions for treatment planning.

Program Highlights
  • An assessment process driven by the youth and family, building upon their strengths, desires and needs to support the youth’s continued tenure in the community
  • Engaging youth in various social and recreational activities and teaching life skills such as money management and the use of public transportation
  • Assisting youth with career and educational planning
  • Although mentors work with youth to reach specific concrete goals, providing the youth with time for fun and opportunities to build self-esteem
  • Intervention that teaches skills and competencies that assist the youth to overcome challenges
  • Assistance to the youth and family in linking to services, supports, community resources and opportunities
  • Providing or arranging transportation as needed to meet goals
