Life Skills

Develop the basic skills necessary for independence.

Often times young adults require assessment and coaching in order to develop and hone the necessary life skills necessary for long-term independence and success. At The Crossroads uses the Casey Life Skills model as a guide to develop individualized life skills training programs for our clients. Working through the life skills component of our program in turn helps the young adults to gain confidence and traction in working towards their life goals. Once a young adult develops a healthy set of life skills, independence is that much more attainable.

Based off of information from the Casey Life Skills assessment and clinical observation, young adults are evaluated on their proficiency with the following life skills listed below. Therapists work with colleagues to establish specific life skills with goals and objectives that become part of each student’s master treatment plan and are a focus of work between student’s and colleagues throughout the week.

Educational & Vocational Opportunities

Prepare for sustained success.

While at ATC the clients will continue on their personal journey by exploring and pursuing their unique educational and vocational needs and goals. Clients work with their staff colleagues who assist with scheduling, accountability, attendance, resume building, skills training and private tutoring (as needed).

While enrolled at ATC clients are able to complete their high school diploma, GED, or attend college or vocational school. Clients that need to complete his or her high school education have several options in the St. George area. Most commonly, clients attend Southwest Adult High School, located just a few blocks from the ATC clubhouse. Other options include distance learning or traditional high school. There are also a number of continuing education options including Dixie State University for a traditional college experience as well as a number of vocational schooling options.

For clients that have completed their educational goals or may not be interested in college or vocational training, colleagues work with a network of professionals in the community on job placement and/or internships. One of the benefits of St. George is that it offers the resources of a metropolitan city while also being small enough to allow for an intimate community business network for our clients depending on their career interests.
