Working with the Asante Centre, an organization that provides support to families with children diagnosed with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD), the Supported Program for Youth with FASD begins on Saturday, November 18 from 2:00pm – 6:00pm at the Pacific Community Resources Society (PCRS) at 13479 76 Avenue, Surrey.
The goals of the program are to help participants develop self-advocacy skills, learn self-regulation, and work towards meeting their personal life, work, and educational goals. Therapeutic counselling will be available free of charge to participants requesting this service.
A hot meal will be served from 5:00pm – 6:00pm.
Youth with FASD are predisposed to mental health concerns, are more likely to endure trauma, and are at risk for poor life outcomes such as early school dropout, justice involvement, unemployment, homelessness and addiction. Through this series of mentor-led workshops, under the clinical supervision of Dan’s Legacy’s trained therapists, we will help close a gap identified by this cohort who see mentorship as a primary need and predictor of future positive outcomes.
