What we do

We are committed to providing clients with the education and training needed to help them realize positive change in their lives. We believe it is necessary to meet young people where they are, to strive to know them as individuals,  in order to facilitate meaningful growth. This happens at PWC through a combination of mentorship, counseling,  comprehensive learning experiences, and authentic opportunities to give back to their community.

Who we serve

Our organization serves a racially and socio-economically diverse group of middle and high school-aged students from Pittsburg, California and surrounding areas. Client referrals come from the local school district, the county, community partnerships, and word-of-mouth. Throughout the year, we have 200+ young people who enroll in life/educational skill-building classes, attend in order to experience mentorship, and sign-up as a means to engage with and serve their community.

Why it works

We offer opportunities unlike any other service provider in our area; utilizing evidence-based strategies, we aim to meet children where they are. We believe that in order to be effective, we must meet youth where they are and we must see the whole child, with respectful understanding of their lived experience. This is why counseling with a full-time, on-site mental health clinician is at the very heart of everything we do. All of the other services and elements of our program- from mentorship and relationship-building to service-learning projects, from time to productively collaborate with peers in a safe setting to authentic opportunities to contribute meaningfully to the community- stem from a core of therapeutic work.
