Creative Youth Mentoring
FOR AGES 14-21
These sessions incorporate aspects of mentoring, coaching and art therapy to provide guidance and emotional support during an important stage of a young person’s development. As an adolescent or young adult, you are transitioning into a new chapter in your life and gaining independence away from home. The pressures of growing up can sometimes cause anxiety and stress as you decide on your next move, whether it is high school or university. A mentor can help you to feel understood and supported in making positive life choices. Through personal exploration, you will learn to cope with your emotions and overcome internal barriers to reach your full potential.
In this collaborative process, you will be guided to work on art activities that will allow you to reflect on your identity, strengths, dreams and aspirations. We will address underlying issues that arise from your artwork to make improvements in your personal outlook. This is an opportunity for you to develop greater individual agency and purpose in your journey to adulthood and beyond.
