Therapeutic Mentoring

OLA’s Therapeutic Mentoring services are provided to youth under the age of 21 in need of extra support. Our services have a strength based approach, focusing on the clients strengths and abilities. Relationships will be established to help foster the building of self esteem, interpersonal communication, problem solving, and conflict resolution skills. Clients participating in therapeutic mentoring services will learn critical skills that will help enable them to maximize their potential.

  • Behavioral rehearsal
  • Skill acquisition in the community
  • Practicing skills in the community
  • Exposure to social situations in which age-appropriate skills can be practiced
