Youth programs for individuals experiencing social, emotional or behavioral health challenges
Family Involvement Center’s youth programs provide youth of all ages with support and skills for reaching behavioral health goals. The program held after school hours offers fun, engaging activities using various curricula and approaches, including, the Nurtured Heart Approach, Trauma Informed Approach, Physical Health and Wellness, and Mind Up Curriculum. The relationship-focused methodology is designed to equip youth with the qualities needed to become healthy, caring and responsible individuals.
- Skills Building: Youth achieve personalized goals such as communication, social skills, self-regulation, personal space, building meaningful connections, being part of a community, etc.
- Visual & Performing Arts: Youth work with a resident artist to create recycled art projects, participate in cooking lessons, and express themselves through music, dance and drama.
- Healthy Lifestyle Coaching: Youth learn the importance of cultivating healthy relationships, practicing mindfulness and self-care, choosing healthy foods, and pursuing exercise through recreation, games and sports.
- Excursions: Youth explore activities in the community.
The youth program is also available as a home and community program. Youth receive individual mentoring services after school 2-4 times a month (or as needed). Saturday group sessions are also offered.
During summer and various school breaks, both programs offer day programs with various schedules.
Our Youth Programs are free, however, youth must be enrolled in AHCCCS and participate in behavioral health services.
