Additional Information

Children can find themselves again through reestablishing important basic principles of behavior in their lives. They will learn to view themselves, their surrounding, and others in a new and different perspective; one in which they will see themselves as valued and meaningful contributors. Our unique approach provides teens with an opportunity to succeed.

Young Men & Women in Transition Inc. will be teaching courses on everyday life experiences. The meetings will be on Monday twice per month.
