Many of the young adults participating in Brightstone Transitions have received extensive therapeutic support but lack the tools necessary for self-sufficiency. Brightstone uses an action oriented approach that creates learning opportunities through real life situations. Our participants 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 participants to develop the critical self-confidence that will propel them toward independence. This includes clients becoming confident in their abilities to set up and attend a job interview and developing the discipline to arrive at a job or class on time and ready to succeed.
