Youth Resources


Big Brother/Big Sisters of Mohave County
BBBS matches an adult volunteer with a child or youth to become a friend, confidant, and mentor- a Big Brother or Big Sister. This companionship provides the youth with an increased sense of belonging that often leads to enhanced self-esteem, better communication skills, and improved performance at home, school, and within the community. Care is taken in pairing adults and youth so that they have similar interest. Professional caseworkers provide supervision and support plus work with the volunteer, the child, and the child’s family to set goals for the match.
Please visit the Mohave BBBS website for more information- MohaveBBBS.org

Student Assistance Program (SAP)
Support groups for children and youth in grades K-12 are held at the schools, providing students with a safe place to express their needs, feelings, thoughts and concerns.
Objectives of the program include assistance in building self-esteem, confidence, and positive communication skills. Two trained facilitators (one from the school where the group is held plus a community volunteer) lead the group toward positive outcomes. SAP promotes and encourages a healthy life-style and helps students see how their behavior affects not only themselves but also those around them.
The Student Assistance Program provides groups for pregnant teens, as well as children of divorced parents; those new to Lake Havasu City; those experiencing grief; those retained in school levels; and children who feel they need assistance with personal growth, relationships and family issues.
