Our Mentoring Program

As an organization that has targeted women and teen girls, we have recently decided to start a mentoring program for young men and women ages 13-25. Our Marvelous Men Moving Forward, Teen Talk, and Young Women of Power programs, each include a one-on-one mentoring program to assist parents and schools with guiding young boys and girls in the right direction. The teenage years are amongst the hardest time we will go through in our lives. It is the age where our body grows, our emotions become stronger, and we gain the ability to think on our own. It is also the time when someone can be easily influenced and succumbs to the actions of those around them.

We want to surround our youth with POSITIVITY, PURPOSE, and PASSION!

 Our mentoring program consists of a 4-week mentoring and goal building plan. The four weeks do not have to be consecutive. After the four weeks, there will be an option to continue our program on a regular but less frequent basis. We align our success with the needs of our mentee. Although we allow parents to participate, we prefer that the parent allows the student to be alone with their mentor. Teenagers are more likely to open up about things when they feel safe and comfortable with their mentor without the disturbance of their family and friends.

The Troubled Movement, Inc. has dedicated its efforts to leading the youth of our community. We use the following techniques to reach our goal:

  •  We listen! We are here to hear you. We do not judge or discriminate against anyone.

  • We are faith-based! Most of our lessons, events, and activities incorporate spiritual enrichment and the Word of God. The Troubled Movement was built on the testimony of a once Troubled teen who was saved by the grace of God.

  • Purpose, plan, and pursue! We help teens and young adults create a goal(s) that they can work on both during and after our mentoring sessions.
  • We’ve been there! Every one of our staff members, mentors, and even the Founder has been through tragedy. We have overcome adversity repeatedly. We have been equipped with the ability to teach others how to do so as well. What better way to learn than from someone who’s been there?
