Young Adults of Cornerstones
Clients at our Young Adult Transition Program
Cornerstones of Maine’s young adult transition program supports the unique needs of folks as they navigate the path towards independence. Our program is tailored to individuals with a history of adversity. Most of the young adults who come to our program have previous experiences in mental healthcare settings such as residential treatment, wilderness therapy, or intensive outpatient programs. Others have experienced extended periods of isolation at home. Despite these challenges, our clients come ready to engage in professional work or attend classes, albeit requiring additional scaffolding and support, which our program is adept at providing.
Nurturing Growth and Exploration in Community
Our clients have worked in a variety of roles specific to their interests. Some examples include serving at local restaurants and coffee shops, apprenticing with mechanics, retail jobs at local clothing stores and bookstores, art museum guides, mentorships with fashion designers, and many more! Our clients are creative and bright young adults who historically have pursued educational tracks in graphic design, creative arts, marine biology, engineering, and other vocational trades ranging from esthetics to carpentry.
