Life Skills Training Programs for Troubled Young Adults in New York

Life skills training programs are focused on helping struggling young adults between the ages of 18 to 25 who are experiencing self-defeating issues which are preventing them from successfully transitioning into adulthood. Comprehensive in-depth programs offer many opportunities for successful behavioral treatment and prepares youthful men and women to make critical life decisions. Parents, if you have an adult child from New York who is struggling to launch, call At The Crossroads at 866-439-0354 for further assistance.

Life preparation skills for the men and women entering adulthood are not something that is readily taught to teenagers. Teens in this category usually learn by "trial and error", with devastating effects. These programs include building credit and proper use of credit cards, paying monthly bills, managing a checking account, saving money, ownership and maintenance of cars and insurance, medical and health insurance, signing a lease for an apartment or home, picking the right roommates, job preparedness, finding and keeping a job, creating resumes, job interview practice, career guidance, paying taxes and filing tax returns, applying for college with financial aid, managing the demands of school, work and social activities, shopping for groceries, cooking, learning good nutrition, physical fitness, balancing social activities with obligations and responsibilities, and creating/managing a budget for 
expenses, such as rent, food, utilities, clothing, recreation.

Educational Assistance Programs For Young Adults

Another important service we offer young adults is educational assistance. Many of the individuals who attend our program have struggled in school in the past, and have failed to achieve their academic goals. This failure gets in the way of their potential and can damage their future opportunities. We can help young adults address their educational weaknesses and get into the college program they want to attend.

Vocational Training For Young Adults from New York

At The Crossroads is a therapeutic transitional living facility with programs for struggling young adults. Our services are designed to teach life skills and personal growth through a combination of education, restructuring and therapeutic intervention. At The Crossroads provides behavioral and emotional counseling as well as a quality education and opportunities to work. We reinforce self-discipline and build self-respect while developing a positive self-image. But we are also aware that for all these other aspects of our program to have an impact, we also must help the young adults who stay with us get the vocational training they need. With this in mind, we work with every young adult in our program to help them attain the training they need to meet their career goals.

Money Management Training Can Help Young Adults Live Independently

Managing personal finances is an essential part of being an independent adult, and is a subject that is often neglected in school. At The Crossroads understands the importance of getting young adults to the point of being financially competent, so that they are able to function without their parents. Our educational programs will walk your son or daughter through this process and ensure that they have the financial and money management skills they need.

If your expectation is that reconnecting after time apart is an important issue, your teens will share that expectation. Demand your teen's attention in an inoffensive way, with a light touch, and don't take any disinterest personally. Once they get used to the routine of reconnecting after separation, they will take it for granted.

Parents can help their teen make a plan to stop smoking and stay motivated by offering suggestions, such as writing down why he or she wants to stop smoking, setting a quit date, hanging out with friends who don’t smoke and encourage him/her to get involved in new activities.

"Starting out in the program I had few responsibilities, but as I got a job and worked harder, I started paying my own bills. It became really gratifying to know I could budget my money, work hard at a job, and accomplish the things I have." -Miles (Former Student).
