We Believe The Children Are Our Future!
SUCCESSQUEST PROGRAM AGENDA
Success Quest is a leadership, mentoring, college prep, and behavioral health program for children and youth (at-risk, delinquent, oppositional and defiant, traumatized or simply in need of mentoring). Two dynamic programs (Countdown 2 College and SuccessQuest) merge to provide young people between the ages of 12-19 with resources and skills in the area of leadership, goal setting, college prep and decision making. This program is specifically designed to increase outreach to middle and high school children in the Atlanta Metropolitan area of Georgia in order to reduce risk factors, promote student achievement and social success. This program allows us to offer young people with mentoring, therapy, academic and vocational services in a safe, drug free environment. Dr. Lisa Tait (DrTait.com) author of Countdown 2 College, Licensed Professional Counselor, Motivational Speaker and Community Leader is the Founder and Facilitator of SuccessQuest.
