Growing Responsible Independent People (GRIP)
The GRIP Program is an intensive group home located in the diverse community of Lowell, MA. We serve transitional age adolescents who come to us with social, emotional, mental health and behavioral challenges, and histories of complex trauma.
The program strives to teach youth the skills they will need to succeed on their own in the future, including educational, vocational, and social skills. The program helps youth identify community resources and adult services as they transition out of the care of the Department of Children and Families. GRIP works to help adolescents integrate into the community in a supportive way through a strength-based model that identifies their unique capacities.
Within the safety and structure of a home-like environment and a supportive community, our youth are able to build a strengthened sense of self, allowing them to move forward from GRIP with a sense of mastery and autonomy.
We are seeking volunteers to:
- Assist individuals with planning and implementing an activity.
- Work with individuals to learn a new activity such as instrument playing, baking, cooking, language, sewing, woodworking, knitting, crocheting, photography etc.
- Assist a staff person with individual or group activities.
- Play board games or cards
- Share stories and listen
- Your ideas are always welcome!
