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
- 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.”
