Teens mentoring teens. Now that the social skill foundation is more solid, it’s time for high school age students to start spreading their wings and get the most out of their high school years. The focus here is a continued emphasis on self esteem, responsibility and core character traits along with ongoing introductions to “what’s cool” and other age-relevant skills that prepare for independence. We accomplish this goal by pairing teens with learning differences with peer volunteers!
