Preparing Students for Adult Life

After high school graduation, some students need additional support to prepare for life as an independent adult.

Vanguard staff offers ongoing supportive services and mentoring to encourage independent living skills, mood management skills, achieve a balance between physical health and fitness, maintain an organized environment, establish healthy relationship patterns, and build self-esteem and values.

Some of the services offered in these programs include:

  • Community networking
  • Crisis management
  • Educational counseling and support
  • Life skills training
  • Social skills enhancement
  • Vocational counseling and support

Participants are often struggling to overcome obstacles to success:

  • Difficulties in relationships
  • Failure to succeed in college or even to finish high school
  • Family conflict
  • Inability to obtain or to hold a job
  • Irresponsible behavior
  • Lack of a sense of direction
  • Mental health challenges
  • Substance abuse

Let's talk about a plan that works for your young adult.
