mentoring services for teens and transition age students 14-21

Looking for mentoring services for your teen or transition age student with disabilities?

The goal of Aptiv's mentoring program, for teens and transition age students ages 14-21, is to help teens and transition age students with disabilities achieve their full potential for personal development so they may live more independent lives. Aptiv’s mentoring program features a structured and trusting relationship that brings teens and transition age students together with caring and committed Aptiv staff who offer guidance and encouragement aimed at supporting the character and development of youth.

Mentors provide support to improve a teen or transition age student's ability to interact in the community in socially appropriate ways by practicing, modeling, guiding, and shadowing the child in the community.

The programming may also provide education and skill development or training to improve a teen or transition age student's ability to perform routine daily activities and utilize community resources. 

Aptiv offers mentoring services to support the participant through:

  • Peer interaction

  • Recreational Outings
