Positive Peer Mentoring (PPM) is a new office dedicated to providing comprehensive mental and emotional health support to individuals of all ages. Our programs and services are designed to address the unique needs of different age groups and offer a wide range of support options.


We offer after-school and weekend emotional support programs for children aged 5 to 12 (kindergarten to 6th grade). These programs focus on building emotional intelligence and resilience in children. Through engaging activities, discussions, and creative outlets, we help children understand and express their emotions effectively. For example, we may use art techniques to help children explore and process their feelings or engage them in group activities that promote empathy and understanding.


Our specialized programs for older students aged 13 to 21 with 504 plans, Individualized Education Programs (IEPs), and Individualized Support Plans (ISPs) are tailored to meet their needs. These programs provide targeted support in stress management, self-advocacy, and goal setting. For instance, we may offer class groups on stress reduction techniques, study skills, and time management strategies to help these students thrive academically while managing their emotional well-being.


In addition to age-specific programs, we offer general mental and emotional life Mentoring and Coaching for individuals aged 10 and above. These sessions cover various topics and provide practical tools and strategies for personal growth and well-being. Let us delve into some of these areas:


1. Gratitude and Appreciation of Self: We guide individuals in recognizing their strengths, accomplishments, and unique qualities. Through exercises and reflection, we help them develop a positive self-image and cultivate self-compassion.


2. Grief and Bereavement: Our support programs provide a safe space for individuals to process their emotions and navigate the grieving process. We offer guidance and coping strategies to help them cope with loss and find healing.


3. Coping Mechanisms such as Mindfulness Meditation: Mindfulness practices have been proven effective in reducing stress and promoting emotional well-being. We teach individuals techniques such as deep breathing, body scans, and mindful awareness to help them manage stress and cultivate a sense of calm.


4. Motivation and Goal Achievement: We assist individuals in setting realistic goals and developing strategies to stay motivated and overcome obstacles. Through personalized coaching, we help them identify their passions, create action plans, and celebrate their achievements.


5. Positive Relationships with Others: Building healthy and fulfilling relationships is crucial for emotional well-being. We provide guidance on effective communication, active listening, conflict resolution, and boundary-setting to help individuals foster positive connections with others.


6. Stress Burnout Prevention: We equip individuals with tools and techniques to recognize signs of stress and burnout. We teach them self-care practices, time management strategies, and stress reduction techniques to maintain balance and prevent emotional exhaustion.


It is important to note that individuals under 18 must have a parent, guardian, or another adult in the waiting room during sessions. Our staff and volunteers are certified to provide Touch Direct Contact Therapy (TDCT) and Connection and Companionship Therapy (C&CT) exclusively to clients aged 18 and above.


While our mentors and life coaches are trained professionals and trained volunteers, it is essential to understand that we do not have the authority to diagnose or prescribe medication. Our role is to provide guidance, support, and practical strategies to help individuals navigate their emotional challenges and improve their overall well-being. We work collaboratively with individuals to develop personalized plans that empower them to lead fulfilling and emotionally healthy lives.
