At Shelterwood, our troubled youth mentorship program plays a vital position in the therapeutic treatment of our teens. Mentors model our relational approach to healing. They are young followers of Jesus who quite literally “do life” with our teens. This includes laying foundational work in relational development, cultivating spiritual growth, and assisting in the process of helping our teens reach their therapeutic goals. Our troubled youth mentorship program is not to merely designed to create behavioral change, but to champion heart change through loving our teens the way Jesus does.
