Take Action: Mentoring Youth Who Have Differing Abilities

This course provides a special focus on youth who have special health care or mental health needs. Youth in high school face the challenge of transitioning to adulthood. That transition to adulthood is a time of special challenge for families and individuals with special health care needs; this course establishes a mentoring program that will help these kids prepare for their transition to legal, medical, professional, and recreational adulthood. Honors students will be paired with a high school student to mentor them on health, higher education, and coping strategies.
