Why Adolescent Mentoring? 
Executive Functioning Skills
Why Adolescent Mentoring? 

 

Adolescents often need extra support emotionally or with organizing their lives. This could be at the beginning of a school term, when a family problem arises or when the student is just not reaching his/her potential. There are many times when children can “hear” things differently from an adult outside of the family. Adults benefit from improving executive functioning skills for work and in their personal lives.

Additional Benefits with Adolescent Mentoring
  • With your permission, we can connect with teachers/therapists/tutors to create a cohesive "team" approach which results in more consistency for your child.

 

  • As our work progresses, the parent(s) can move out of “negative” communication and into something more positive so that family life improves. We will also work with parents to encourage this process. 

 

  • We are highly creative and positive with our approach. We create a rapport which enables us to be constructively critical when needed, yet supportive at at all times.  That is our challenge!
