UMCH Crestview Teen Center

The Crestview Teen Center offers services to youth living in foster care and foster parents. Several new opportunities are offered to help them reach personal, educational, and spiritual goals. Goal setting and on-going coaching sessions are implemented to discuss behavior, strengths, and tasks for goal achievement.

What We Offer Through the Teen Center

The Crestview Teen Center offers an Educational Support Program to have access to study hours, tutoring sessions, and study skills training. The Employment and Vocational Support and Volunteer Placement Program is available to gain assistance in writing resumes, training for interviews, completing job applications, earning volunteer hours, and learning the appropriate attire and behavior for interviews and jobs. UMCH also coordinates and hosts a career fair every six months for the youth. Finally, our Social Engagement Program is set forth to interact in positive situations with peers, grow in spiritual development, and develop healthy social skills. A Foster Parent Night Out is hosted quarterly and churches are encouraged to volunteer to host these nights with food and activities for the youth. Foster parents can also benefit from the clothes closet and supplies closet at the Crestview Teen Center.
