Explanation of Service Approach


All life coaches staff with a Masters Level Therapist to review effectiveness of activities created to reach treatment goals. Therapists give expert advice as to what is needed in the treatment plan and helps drive a focused and individual plan for referred youth.

Our agency requires that all life coaches attend a minimum of 1 training per quarter. We also have bi-weekly professional development and quarterly in-service training. We work closely with partnering agencies that provide training, such as (not limited to) Indiana Youth Institute and McCoy.
