Many of the young adults participating in Brightstone Transitions have received extensive therapeutic support, but lack the tools necessary to be self-sufficient. Brightstone uses an action–oriented approach that creates learning opportunities through real life situations. Our clients move beyond program–centered activities and, with guidance from mentors, they obtain employment, learn the power of volunteerism, complete educational hurdles, enroll in college or technical school, and learn what it means to be truly self-sufficient.
Our professional mentors provide the encouragement and support needed for young adults to develop the critical self-confidence needed to propel them towards independence. This includes gaining confidence in their abilities to create and implement personal, social, educational, and vocational goals.
