Youth who are either diagnosed or suspected of having FASD are in great need of a FASD Youth Mentor. The Youth Mentor service provides the following:
- Crisis intervention and counseling
- Ensuring basic needs are met (housing, clothing, food)
- Skill building youth work – decision making, budgeting, living skills (cooking, cleaning, paying bills, etc.)
- Connecting to relevant support services
- Parent/teen mediation
As McMan currently provides community and youth programs and operates the Inn Between Youth Shelter, this program enhances already existing youth programs by capturing the FASD youth community.
