Teen Life Skills Discussion Group: This group is led by a professional counselor with the assistance of peer mentors. The format is on an open topical discussion of issues teens face daily, including; peers, feeling, relationships, and alternative activities. The group focuses on teaching resiliency to teens so that they can better manage their lives.

 

Healthy Activities: The culture of youth has not always been one of seeking fun, exciting experiences. Increasingly, teens are not involved in healthy fun activities. At the Changes Program, teens will have the option of being involved in planning, coordinating and participating in fun activities that are entirely substance free.

 

Service Learning: Freedom4U has a service-learning network where teens have the option of directly participating in specific causes. In this way, teens will learn to help someone in greater need than themselves or to help a needy cause. There are multiple service options.
