Schools can present many challenges for our youth: social, emotional, and educational. These challenges can take the form of truancy, failing grades, disruptive behavior, gang activity, and drug and alcohol use. YouThrive addresses these challenges by offering early intervention strategies to Sonoma and Marin Counties students in grades K through 12. This early intervention school-based program consists of weekly sessions (fall and spring) for students referred by school counselors and staff, youth-serving organizations, or parents. These sessions could be group coping skill development, group and/or individual therapy, or even family therapy if indicated. Our team works with students where they study and interact with each other, with teachers, and with school administrators. To learn more about YouThrive, click here.

At this time, the Internship Program for Youthrive has one internship available.
