School-Based Programs & Services

Care Where Youth Are

THS provides counseling staff at Madrona Middle School (Making a Difference at Madrona) and Garfield High School offering a variety of services. These school-based services include:

THS counseling staff also provide support and resource connections to address specific issues identified by students, families and the school community.

THS Staff typically practice “nontraditional”, methods of counseling, i.e., it is not uncommon for staff to have individual sessions in a park or on a basketball court in school just as often as in their offices. Many youth in treatment have had prior, unsuccessful encounters with systems and they may have a myriad of trust issues. Which is why THS Staff do their best to engage them in a variety of settings and not solely in the traditional, in-office, behind the desk individual or group session.

THS partners with Seattle Housing Authority to provide assessment, intervention, counseling and referrals for Seattle School District students living in Yesler Terrace.

Rites of Passage

THS offers Rites of Passage, a life-skills class at Garfield High School. It’s also part of the Seattle Housing/Yesler Terrace program. Rites of Passage is designed to motivate positive behaviors among youth of African ancestry.

The Rites of Passage program concentrates on cultural identity as a means of teaching responsibility. Young people are introduced to an African value system through the practice of the Nguzu Saba or the Seven Principles of Kwanzaa. The program helps young people develop a positive sense of self. It promotes responsibility to the community and teaches positive life skills.
