Current Difficulties

Venture Academy’s Outreach Youth Counselling assists families wishing to prevent a crisis or have come to the realization they need help.

Venture Academy’s Outreach Youth Counselling serves a youth population who may have a history of:

  • Family difficulties
  • School suspensions
  • Drug or alcohol abuse
  • Problems with the law
  • Negative peer relationships
  • Clinically diagnosed disorders

Youth accessing the program may be demonstrating behavioural challenges and experiencing emotional difficulties. These barriers would most likely be preventing the youth from healthy functioning in his or her everyday life causing disruptions in school, family life, and social relationships.
