Northville Youth Assistance Overview
Northville Youth Assistance (NYA) is a volunteer-supported organization that provides social services to youths and their families. The program offers professional counseling as well as the opportunity for a youth to establish a supportive relationship with a trained volunteer mentor. The purpose of the program is to mentor youths so they may become mature, responsible adults. Examples of kids who can benefit from mentoring are those who recently moved into the community; have experienced a death of a parent; have no contact with one parent; have a grandparent as a primary caregiver; have a difficult time making friends, etc. The youths range in age from 5-16 years old.
Volunteer mentors are concerned citizens who share one or more hours per week with a youth. They are carefully screened and receive 10 hours of training followed by on-going guidance and support of the program staff. Mentors are matched one-on-one with a youth and enjoy activities such as walking in the park, playing basketball, baking cookies and going to museums, the library and sporting events.
These services are available at no charge to residents of the City of Northville, the Charter Township of Northville and the Northville School District.
