Adolescence can be a difficult time for anyone to negotiate, particularly when one has been removed from one’s home. Youth in group homes and foster care have substantial issues and needs in making a successful transition to adulthood. By understanding adolescent development, we can better appreciate how and why young people behave the way they do, and we can help young people make better decisions.
While each teenager is an individual with a unique personality and interests, there are also many developmental milestones—or issues—that everyone faces during adolescence.
Our Adolescent Development Training (A.D.T.) programme, facilitated by our Senior Child Care Worker, aims to equip our youth with the necessary skills to reach their full potential.
Topics covered in the programme include: Self identity; Substance abuse; Spirituality; Career Guidance; Peer pressure; and Life goals.
