Jordan PTA and its members generously donate and support Adolescent Counseling Services (ACS) annually. ACS is a non-profit organization whose mission is to empower teens and their families in our community to realize their emotional and social potential through counseling and preventive education. ACS actively collaborates with Jordan Middle School staff and teachers to provide on-campus counseling to individuals, groups and families at no cost to secondary school students. The goal of the program is to provide life-saving early intervention for teens dealing with challenging issues of adolescence. With accessible, compassionate therapists available on campus, teens have a safety net of professionals with whom to confront their issues. The range of issues addressed through the program includes academic stress, peer conflict, self-esteem, depression and anxiety, suicidal thoughts, grief and loss, and substance abuse. ACS therapists connect students and families to vital community resources, such as mentoring programs, after-school activities, community organizations and health care. The program also includes bilingual counseling and education for Latino families.
