In a partnership with the special education department at Lewiston Public Schools, Tree Street staff and interns provide tutoring services during temporary periods of testing/assessment or behavior-management planning. Set up as a contracted service, we place tutors with specific youth as they get identified by the school system. Tutoring is one-on-one with any staff or intern holding an Ed Tech III certificate, and typically takes place at Tree Street.
Tier 3 behavioral intervention provided to Longley Students in grades 2nd-4th for specifically identified youth. Students begin their day at Tree Street with unique social-emotional and behavioral training programs implemented by Tree Street staff and interns. Staff then follow youth back to Longley and attend their itinerant (art, music, etc.) classes with them as well as a period of English or Math. The focus of the program is to support youth in behaving appropriately in class as well as assisting youth in handling their challenges and issues in healthy ways.
Tree Street Reporting Center programming serves up to 12 moderate- to high-risk young men currently involved in the juvenile corrections system. These youth may be on informal adjustment, pre-or post-adjudicatory, or on aftercare status. The program is designed so the courts or JCCO’s can mandate the youth to attend the program for a specific time period or in order to reach specific goals. The program would monitor youth from 2 PM – 8 PM, 5 days a week, while developing and implementing individualized plans for each youth. JCCO’s, counselors, caseworkers etc. will be able to meet with youth at the program in areas that are confidential and appropriate, while specific restorative group programming – directed by youth needs – will take place daily.
