What Is a Rehabilitative Mentoring Program?

Changing Turn’s Rehabilitative Mentoring Program is a support service rendered to youth usually in the care of the local department of social services office at the request of the youth’s case worker. Our mentoring staff will provide community supervision, transportation, and behavioral management to clients as needed and will also work with each client in further development of daily living skills. Our rehabilitative / therapeutic mentoring service is usually requested while youth are transitioning to new residential placements such as group homes and foster care placements. However, our services are provided in any setting where the youth resides, such as the home (including foster homes and therapeutic foster homes), and in community settings, such as schools, child care centers, respite settings, as well as other culturally and linguistically appropriate community settings.

Rehabilitative / Therapeutic Mentoring offers structured, one-to-one, strength-based support services between a therapeutic mentor and a youth (up to the age of 21) for the purpose of addressing communication, daily-living, and social needs.

    The following are components of our Rehabilitative/Therapeutic Mentoring Program:

    • An assigned mentor will spend directed time with the youth in activities in the home and community that are designed to meet the goals in the treatment plan
    • The mentor will coach, support and train the youth to be successful in navigating various social contexts, learning new skills and making functional progress
    • The mentor will teach alternative strategies and provide anticipatory guidance to the youth
    • The mentor will provide exposure to social situations in which age-appropriate skills can be practiced
    • Role plays and behavioral rehearsal
    • Skill acquisition and practice in the community
    • Enhancement of conflict resolution skills
    • Development of  communication skills

    Rehabilitative / Therapeutic mentors spend an average of 2 hours a week with a child. The average length of the mentor/child relationship is 3-9 months.
