The High School Years


Every teen has a unique life experience.  They have a story to tell about themselves, their hopes, their struggles, their failures and achievement.  Teens have many things in common.   They want to have fun with friends.  They want to do well in school and activities.  They want to be independent, discover themselves and feel good about who they are.  They want to feel safe and accepted.  They want to take responsibility for their actions.   They want to have a future when they graduate high school.   As a community we are proud of our teens and want them to have the best life has to offer.

At TeenPride, our counselors want to help each student achieve their true potential and experience high school in good health and happiness.   Many students feel that they cannot talk to a parent, friend or family member about the issues that concern them.  Also, they spend more time in school than anywhere else during the week.  The TeenPride counselor is a trusted, skilled adult who the student can turn to during confusing or difficult times.  We help the teen understand what is going on in their life and the difference between circumstances and behavior that hold them back or enable them to be successful.   

We provide counseling for any issue the teen is facing.  There is no topic off limits.  The following is a sample list of topics in alphabetical order that we have addressed:

  • Academic suspension - In school and out of school suspension
  • Anger management, harassment and bullying
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Arrest for a criminal offense
  • Bereavement
  • Emotional, mental health and behavioral issues
  • Family issues and conflicts; foster care  
  • Financial issues due to low income and poverty 
  • Immigration to the U.S. orientation and referral to service agencies  
  • Issues causing academic difficulty, academic failure
  • Pregnancy and parenting
  • Rape and sexual assault
  • Relationships with friends and peers; Romance and dating
  • Self-esteem, loneliness
  • Sexuality and sexual activity
