Empowering youth to meet life's challenges
Growing up is tough. The Youth Council's dedicated team of professionals and clincians is here to support, guide and empower youth and families along the way. Whether a young person faces mental health struggles, behavioral difficulties, uses drugs or alcohol, or wants to develop healthy coping skills to manage stress, our evidence-based programs meet youth where they are to offer the support they need.
Through our work we have earned the trust of guidance counselors, health care providers, youth workers, parents and caregivers.
We are committed to providing services at little to no cost. Our programs are funded and supported through local, state and private funding sources. We accept insurance and turn no child away due to a lack of funds.
