Troubleshooting Guide

We know working with teenagers and the teenage brain isn’t always easy, so we’ve developed a handy list of resources to help you problem solve as challenges come up in your sessions.

There are things you can read, watch and listen to, so browse through the lists below to learn more or for specific needs that come up for you with your mentee.
