Empower youth to make positive changes

Our curricula give youth a voice in their treatment

Young participants who journal develop skills to guide them through their change process, and more than 60 percent still refer to their Journals six months after formal programming has ended. Our curricula are used in both juvenile justice and adolescent treatment settings.

Campus Kilpatrick


Albert Banuelos, youth probation director, needed to implement a trauma-informed and collaborative approach at the Campus Kilpatrick juvenile rehabilitation camp. A culture of emotional and physical safety informed by cognitive-behavioral science was a high priority for the Campus Kilpatrick facility.


The Forward Thinking series provided a treatment resource that aligned with the L.A. Model’s emphasis on self-expression and cognitive development. The practice of Interactive Journaling enabled staff to engage with each participant through a reflective cycle of reading, writing and talking.

If I were to sum up all the responses I’m getting, [it’s] that we’re slowly getting these youth that have come to us with a lifetime of trauma to see some things differently. That helps change, or it helps make better decisions in their eyes.
