- Provide direct supervision, care, and documentation of their youth during 1:1 time.
- Help youth achieve progress in learning, identify and manage reactions to stress and trauma, and respond in more socially appropriate ways.
- Maintain healthy relationships and boundaries with their youth.
- Recognize and celebrate youth progress and good choices.
- Collaborate with administrators, teachers, directors, case workers, and others in the community.
- Establish relationships to expand a circle of influence for each of their youth.
Goals for Our Youth
Our Life Coaches strive to make a true impact for our youth! Our team seeks to influence four key areas in the lives of youth to help them reach their goals and rewrite their story.
The support material for our Life Coaches is built on 4 pillars, the acronym R-I-S-K:
- Skills (Life Skills)
Asking a young person to step into a 1:1 with an adult they don’t know is often asking them to take a “RISK”. Most vulnerable youth have been “cancelled” on by the adults in their life. Together We Thrive does not cancel; we commit to the journey with our youth!
