Our unique location and environment provides a valuable blend of nature, adventure and exploration that inspires and challenges all to push the boundaries of learning and growth in a safe and engaging setting.
Trinity Youth Counseling
Trinity Youth Counseling provides a positive youth development experience to area youth who can benefit from a caring, consistent, and supportive role model. Our Youth Counselors provide each participant with an individualized experience built around connection, guidance, support, and goal-oriented skill building.
Participants in Trinity’s Youth Counseling Program will focus on one-on-one skill development that utilizes a community-based setting to build skills such as self-confidence, social skills, peer relationships skills, community involvement and safety, independent living skills, and more.
All participants are matched with a provider by our administrative team who determine best fit based on each participants’ mental health needs, goals, and various other components of the service to be provided.
Services provided through the program typically last up to 18 months and include individual skill development/enhancement, education and support in the community, at Trinity, and in team meetings.
