We support young adults ages 18-28 years old who struggle with finding purpose and motivation. They often lack the necessary competencies for independence and autonomy in the important transition from adolescence to healthy young adult life. Our young adults commonly experience significant deficits related to psychiatric symptom management, executive functioning, healthy decision making, technology addiction, sobriety, vocational or college readiness and healthy relationship development.
The K2 Young Adult Program is designed to address 6 competencies relevant to enhance movement through the developmental changes needed to fully integrate from adolescence to adulthood.
- Self-Care & Emotional Wellness requires young people to independently manage medications or doctors’ appointments, maintain a schedule which includes a daily hygiene practice, and consistently use adaptive coping skills in the face of adversity.
- Employment & Education assistance is provides with both hard and soft skills such as resume development, job readiness, career exploration, steps toward achieving educational and vocational goals, employee/employer communication, filling out applications, interviewing and sustaining engagement in school or work environments.
- Life Skills for Independence requires planning, banking, budgeting, meal planning, scheduling, learning public transportation, and paying bills. These are examples of crucial skills necessary to launch out of the family home.
- Supported Independent Living includes understanding apartment/landlord contracts, home safety and cleanliness, healthy boundaries with friends, and managing new home responsibilities. Sequencing this process with the help of our staff helps ensure a safe and manageable environment is secured for our young adults.
- Community & Friendships is skilled are developed through safe and facilitated opportunities for socializing, fun, volunteering, and urban/wilderness adventure.
- Fitness & Nutrition is a key component for a sustainable transition from a family home environment structure. This includes initiative and awareness for meal planning, creating exercise routines, as well as time outdoors, and attention and accountability to proper sleep patterns.
