Youth Success Coach

Youth Success Coach

The Youth Success Coach with Communities In Schools of North Carolina will primarily work with youth located at the Youth Development Centers in Concord and Siler City to help ensure a smooth transition back to their home community.  The Youth Success Coach will case manage a multi-phased support structure for youth returning to the home, school, and community from a Youth Development Center.  The YSC will participate in pre-release planning with the YDC transition team, which will develop a support and intervention plan that will follow the youth while in the YDC and after transition out of placement.  Prior to release, the YSC will work with families and schools to prepare a successful reentry plan / strategy. YSC will work primarily in the Youth Development Center with staff and families, attending service planning meetings for each student at least once per month. Post-release, the YSC will work with other YSCs to transition them back to their home community.  In addition, the YSC will support the youth and family’s therapeutic services as recommended by the risk/needs assessment, as facilitated by Juvenile Court Counselors.

Specifically, the YSC will encourage academic, physical, and social-emotional growth; discourage involvement in gang or anti-social activities and offer school-based opportunities for engagement in pro-social/positive activities that promote cognitive and behavioral change in all settings.
