School Initiatives

Parent Support Groups Journey

The Journey Home non-profit understands that parents need support with their at-risk youth. That's where our Parent Support Group Journey begins. In these support groups, we aim to build social engagements between parents, emotional support, encouragement, conflict resolution, reading material, and much more.

In-Home Services

The Journey Home team will work with your family to create a customized, in-home behavioral management program. Our focus is on mentoring kids through the challenges they face at school, with friends, during stressful growth phases, and offering support to parents who struggle with the tools needed to parent challenging children.

Fitness Training

Fitness training is key to increasing confidence and health. Our youth and fitness training programs come with many benefits and are customized for each person. Our coaches can help your child develop good exercise and fitness training habits and improve or maintain personal health goals.

WhyTry Program

The WhyTry Program is a resilience education curriculum that provides simple, hands-on solutions for dropout prevention, violence prevention, truancy reduction, and increased academic success.

It helps to motivate and re-engage students who may be struggling with challenges at home and in school. WhyTry is proven effective at increasing student resilience, motivating unmotivated students, increasing GPA, reducing drop out rates, improving social-emotional health, and reducing bullying and violent behavior.

The idea is straightforward: Teach social and emotional principles to youth in a way they can understand and remember. WhyTry is based on sound empirical principles, including solution-focused brief therapy, social and emotional intelligence, and multi-sensory learning.

The WhyTry curriculum utilizes a series of ten visual analogies that teach important life skills (decisions have consequences; dealing with peer pressure; obeying laws and rules; plugging in to support systems). 

The visual analogies are reinforced through the creative use of customized hip-hop music, video, over 150 learning activities, journal activities that help students reflect on program concepts, and other multimedia. The WhyTry curriculum engages all major learning styles (visual, auditory, and body-kinesthetic). WhyTry is often used for RTI and PBiS.

The WhyTry Program is currently at work in over 20,000 organizations in all 50 of the United States, as well as Canada, the UK, and Australia.
