Campus Connections (formerly Campus Corps) is a therapeutic mentoring program that pairs youth (ages 11-18) with a CSU student mentor for weekly group mentoring sessions on campus. Student mentors spend four hours once a week with their mentee in a group setting to provide academic support and career planning, encourage positive social skill development, assist with goal setting, and implement wellness programming. Strong bonds are developed over the 12 week program between mentors and mentees. Youth start Campus Connections in September or February during the fourth week of the CSU semester. Many youth are referred by school counselors, probation officers, case workers, or other caring professionals.
Teen Group is offered in by the Center for Family and Couple Therapy (CFCT). Teen Group includes a pizza dinner, activities, and support from other teens, mentors, and therapists working in the CFCT. Teen Group activities encourage the development of positive social skills within a supportive environment of peers, mentors, and therapists. The group meets weekly so youth are encouraged to come every week. Youth can start Teen Group any time during the year (including summer).
