Youth are referred by human service professionals such as school counselors and social workers or juvenile justice officials. We do not accept parent referrals. Youth are referred for countless reasons, but some of the most common are: the need for a positive adult role model (especially male), the desire to experience new things, academic help and the benefit of spending quality one-on-one time with an adult who can listen and be a friend.
