The sessions work to correct negative behavior and focus on self-esteem, body image, substance abuse prevention, anger management, STD and teen pregnancy prevention, runaway prevention, teen homelessness, partner abuse, violence, bullying, staying and excelling in school, career development, dress for success, etiquette training, and financial literacy.
-Angel Mentoring is committed to mentoring girls who have been identified as victims of sexual assault, sexual abuse, human trafficking, and domestic violence. The Angel program addresses mentees' developmental, social, and emotional needs through strengths-based programming. Angel mentors provide basic skills and psychosocial services to reduce cognitive and behavioral impairments to restore recipients to their highest level of functioning. Services help recipients acquire constructive cognitive and behavioral skills through positive reinforcement, modeling, operant conditioning, and other techniques.
