At Reintegration Support Network (RSN), our motto is “Stay Becoming”. This represents our shared commitment to aiding youth and emerging adults, 13-20 years old in fostering their own wellbeing.
RSN facilitates Life Skills peer support groups within schools and other youth-serving organizations. The Life Skills curriculum is designed to uphold the SAMHSA Core Competencies of Peer Support: recovery oriented, person-centered, voluntary, relationship-focused, and trauma informed. The 8 week group focuses on supporting youth in developing healthy relationships, positive coping strategies, positive identity, and positive engagement in the community. Each group is co-facilitated by our North Carolina Certified Peer Support Specialist and/or Recovery Coach Academy trained mentors and supervised by our trained staff. We also provide one on one mentoring. This can be concurrent with group participation or as a stand alone service.
RSN believes that growth is an ongoing process that consists of successes as well as setbacks. We are here to nurture resilience and help youth Stay Becoming.
For more information about engaging a youth in mentoring, or hosting a group, please contact RSN Program Director, Megan Raymond, email@example.com.
I am so glad I met Linda through RSN. I feel very comfortable hanging out with her and feel like she is someone I can rely on when I am dealing with difficult feelings. She is someone who can understand certain things that other people might not be able. She’s helped me explore new hobbies and work through situations with family, friends, and relationships, and is always there to offer support! I am incredibly grateful to have her in my life.Thora, (One on one mentoring participant)
