“I am writing this letter in support and appreciation for the collaboration between TEAMRAW Youth Outreach and At the Cross Roads (ATC). It has been very awarding having the students from ATC mentoring our out of our BEACH House located at Dixie Middle.
The BEACH HOUSE (BH) is dedicated to students looking for a break in negative thoughts and behavior in the classroom. They come to the BH where a mentor can help them through those negative thoughts and behaviors through our 1 on 1 mentoring. A relationship of trust is built with the mentees, each time a youth comes into our Beach Houses.
ATC, has been helping with the mentoring piece . Providing group discussions as well as community service with the youth in our program. Watching both mentor and youth feed their relationship has helped not only our youth in their own relationships with their families but, also for the mentors from ATC.
Mentors from ATC help organized and participate in community activities and services, working side by side with the youth.
ATC mentors have helped schools by having a presence in the lunch cafeteria, classrooms and at the Beach House. ATC also helps with 1 on 1 Therapy for the youth we serve.
ATC students learn to give back by sharing what is working for them in re-building a successful future.”
