Family Support



Family Support



Family Unity & Reunification

Those who have a personal stake in a youth’s life need to play an important role in his or her healthy development. Taylor Diversion Programs is family focused and creates experiences that include youth and their families in the support services offered.

Family/Guardian support through the safe, helpful environment at TDP means:

  • Personal involvement in all aspects of a youth’s programming
  • Support continues after the youth re-enters his or her community

TDP believes that family involvement is critical to the success of youth in our care.  Our TDP team maintains regular and extended communication with families/guardians. Parents are offered opportunities to participate in various aspects of the program.


    The “Nature” of Support Through Mentoring

    TDP Youth Mentoring Program

    Mentoring is a time proven strategy that can assist youth in any circumstance to achieve their potential. Mentors provide support, counsel, friendship, reinforcement, and a constructive example. TDP offers five types of mentoring:

    • Traditional One-to-One
    • Group
    • Team
    • Peer
    • E-mentoring (Online)

    TDP recognizes that mentoring is not a one-size fits all proposition; every youth has individual needs and would benefit from a mentoring relationship. Flexibility assists in meeting each mentee’s personal needs. Positive mentoring results when mentors and mentees share a close, trusting relationship. Because relationships and a sense of bonding occur over time between mentors and mentees, the duration and consistency of each mentoring relationship is unique.

    “The best help we can offer the youth of today is to prepare them for tomorrow.”

    Mark W. Boyer

    The Value of Mentoring

    According to the Public/Private Ventures Study of Big Brothers Big Sisters, youth who meet regularly with their mentors are 52% less likely than their peers to skip a day of school and 37% less likely to skip a class. Additional data suggest that approximately 40% of a teenager’s waking hours are spent without companionship or supervision. Mentors provide teens with a valuable place to spend free time. While the benefits of participating in a mentoring program are limitless, mentoring has the potential to address many critical needs in the life of an at-risk youth. To this end, mentors can help youth to:

    • stay in school and maintain better attendance
    • improve academic skills
    • improve self-esteem
    • strengthen communication skills
    • prevent substance abuse
    • prevent teen parenthood
    • reduce negative youth behaviors
    • improve social attitudes and relationships
    • set career goals and start taking steps to achieve them

    Through its skilled team of certified teachers, trainers, and mentors, TDP  is committed to providing  a comprehensive mentoring experience that nurtures, enriches, and improves the daily and future lives of all enrolled youth.
