TEEN COUNSELING SUPPORT GROUP
Organized by: Claudia Gil
My Name is Claudia Gil and I am a graduate student of Social Work at the University of Texas at San Antonio. I have been conducting my advance internship (field placement) at a counseling clinic that is for profit. However, this clinic facilitates free counseling sessions for adolescents and young adults through services provided by volunteers like myself. I would like to raise money in order to establish a support group that can provide teens with emotional support by organizing events and activities that can help them to cope and to recover from traumatic experiences. I am deeply touched by their strength and resiliency. I would like for funds to be available to the patients who can not afford individual counseling sessions. Money collected here will go directly towards adolescent and teens while the opportunity arises to apply for grants and local funding for this cause. This is important to me because mental health wellness for teens can lead into happy and successful lives in the future and this in time will help our society but most importantly it will restore hope for young people who have very few places to turn to. I appreciate your help!
