We provide workshops Life Coaching and Counseling for Individuals, small groups, and peer-led groups. We can do 1-3 hour, half day, or full day workshops. We can base it off your curriculum or tailored to your specific needs for a group.

JAIA engages youth and families from all cultural and religious backgrounds. We do not teach religion or tell young people what to believe. Because the Principles we teach are Universal, our participants are able to clarify their existing values and beliefs, which strengthens their sense of self and therefore their decision-making process.

Spirituality & Positive Youth Development

Adolescents can be at risk for depression, suicide and anti-social behaviors due to feelings of worthlessness. Spirituality fosters a sense of purpose and belonging. Studies have shown it is linked to lower levels of dangerous at-risk behaviors among young people.
