About this organization






Youth Guidance sees a bright and successful future for every elementary and high school student.  Because we believe that success in school is not only possible but should be achieved and celebrated, we are present in the schools to facilitate an environment that truly engages students in the learning process, and through careful guidance, enables them to realize their full potential and graduate with a meaningful plan for successfully managing life. Youth Guidance creates and implements school-based programs that enable children to overcome obstacles, focus on their education and, ultimately, to succeed in school and in life.


Social and Emotional Learning helps youth traverse difficult terrain. We teach young men and women to make positive choices, and help them deal with their unique social and emotional struggles while staying engaged in school. We give youth the tools to succeed through life-enhancing, trauma-informed programs and character-development experiences. Our staff work within schools to identify youth in need of counseling services and support. We then team with students, teachers, principals and parents to create actionable plans that result in a brighter and more certain future.
