This program is specific to youth within the James T. Strickland Youth Center and Progressive Opportunities in Todays Education (POINTE) Academy alternative school. Providing group services sponsored by Boys and Girls Club of South Alabama, ICU targets behaviors and emotions associated with common-risk factors specific to the population. In attempt to reduce recidivism, a primary goal of this program is attaching youth to resources, providing community outreach services upon release (e.g., Teen Talk), and decreasing behaviors that hinder the ability to attend traditional schools.
TEEN TALK (AGE 13-18)
Teen Talk is a FREE outreach program sponsored by Boys and Girls Club of South Alabama, in partnership with the City of Mobile Parks and Recs Department. The purpose is to provide a safe place for middle and high school aged teens to engage in discussions specific to their emotional and behavioral needs. Within recreational facilities in their communities, teens are taught healthy coping skills and provided enrichment that can lead to successful lives. Although groups are free, you must RSVP. Attendance is limited to 10 and MASKS ARE MANDATORY as we adhere to social distancing guidelines. WRITTEN PARENTAL CONSENT MUST BE OBTAINED BEFORE PARTICIPATING.
