Tuesday’s Children provides a wide range of programs and services that address the unique challenges families face at every stage of their lives, including counseling and mental health services, mentoring for children ages 7-18, educational and career guidance for teens and preteens, leadership training for adolescents, and parenting and life management programs for adults. In partnership with experts from around the world and in collaboration with renowned facilitators and mental health professionals, Tuesday’s Children creates programs that bring together children and families whose lives have been dramatically altered by an act of terrorism.
Our programs include:
The Career Resource Center, is offered to young adults directly impacted by September 11, 2001. The Career Resource Center services are designed to provide young adults with tools and resources necessary to navigate the college, internship and career process.
The Tuesday’s Children Youth Mentoring Program is designed to encourage and support mutually beneficial, long-standing relationships between adult role models and children ages 7 to 18. Having a mentor enables children to grow emotionally and socially, build resilience and develop coping skills while encouraging them to make healthy choices.
The Tuesday’s Children Helping Heals program is a community service initiative that gives youth the transformational and rewarding experience of giving back to other communities in need. Through this program, Tuesday’s Children has connected youth and families with community service projects and disaster relief programs.
Project COMMON BOND is building an international network of global youth ambassadors, whose lives have been transformed by terrorism and who are now striving toward tolerance, peace, positivity and empowerment.
Family Engagement events are designed to strengthen resilience by building a community among families with similar experiences. Engagement events help to create positive new traditions, and introduce other Tuesday’s Children programs and services.
