Young adult transition programs can be critical for helping young women successfully transition from adolescence to the increasing independence and responsibility of young adulthood.
Even young women who have had a successful high school or adolescent treatment experience can be overwhelmed by the transition to college, career, and independence. Some drop out of college, others fail to launch, and many “boomerang” back to their parents’ care again and again.
To ensure that young women can confidently transition from adolescence to young adulthood, be sure that they have support in the following key areas: Academics, including accredited high school and college coursework, learning support, and equivalency tests; vocational preparation and work experience; experiential life-skills training; emotional growth.
Having a nurturing, structured, and skills-based support program is particularly important for young women who have fallen behind in their journey toward independence due to longstanding emotional and behavioral problems.
All-girls’ treatment (as opposed to co-educational treatment) in particular has been shown to facilitate emotional engagement, verbal confidence, and self advocacy, critical elements for preparing young women for independence.
InnerChange has been providing highly specialized, research-validated, all-girls treatment for nearly two decades.
