Student Assistance and Prevention Programs

Student Assistance Program

The primary goal of the Student Assistance Program is to identify barriers to learning and help students overcome these issues in order to be successful in school. These services focus on academics, alcohol, tobacco and other drug (ATOD) concerns, mental health issues and behavioral concerns.

Among the programs offered are peer mediation training and classroom presentations focusing on conflict resolution, bullying and life skills. Group facilitation and individual support groups are offered to students in the areas of anger management, changing families, making choices and grieving losses.

TCV consultants visit schools weekly and participate in core team meetings, pre-assessment screenings, make referrals, provide follow-up services for students and provide support groups.
