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!
