PRLog - March 26, 2011 - NORTH PALM BEACH, Fla. -- ARISE –trained group facilitators act as mentors, sharing information from a complete library of ARISE curricula specifically written for at- risk youth with reading and comprehension difficulties. The ARISE approach surprises often violent teens accustomed to grim, unsmiling faces issuing single-syllable commands to juvenile offenders held under lock and key. ARISE group activities are enjoyable for these troubled youth because there are no big words to trip and fall over, and no run on sentences, intimidating pages overflowing with confusing, unintelligible concepts.

ARISE designed interactive lessons contain topics such as anger and conflict management lessons, why education is important, how to find a job and keep it and more. All are discussed and analyzed during non-threatening ARISE group sessions. Opinions matter in ARISE groups. There are no put downs as these children absorb life’s secrets that parents once shared sitting around the kitchen table at dinnertime.
ARISE –trained juvenile justice staff and others truly become life coaches, something severely lacking in the lives of this population. These good people share realistic information that is right for today, ready for tomorrow; the basics like anger management, importance of education, how to find a job and keep it, and why one’s friends often foretell one’s own future. It’s the same good advice privileged kids get as a rite of passage.
This sharing of vital life skills information with troubled youth is essential for their success in today’s super competitive society. And it’s done in a caring, compassionate, professional manner by inspired ARISE group facilitators.
