The enthusiasm, compassion and supportive experience created by the staff at Advance LA is so impressive.
It is an overwhelming, incredible feeling to know that there is a program like Advance LA that completely understand the situation and have real, concrete answers to questions we didn’t even know how to ask.
Your program is exactly what my son needs. I greatly appreciate the help and guidance he gets from his coach
Advance LA is a service I recommend to students/families that are interested in or need services and support beyond academics. This is an amazing resource!
I think other professionals need to know Advance LA exists because there’s nothing like this available locally. Leave it to The Help Group…always on the cutting edge!
My client has made tremendous progress with the support of the Advance LA team.
My child had graduated High School but was unable to figure out what to do from there and had basically “shut down”. Working with a life skills coach provided the one-on-one support that helped him set and accomplish goals and make lasting changes for his future. He now works two part-time jobs and has taken some college classes. This is an amazing program and I would recommend it wholeheartedly.
I found the two coaches she worked with, plus the program administrators, to be kind, open-minded, and sensitive to my needs as well as my daughter’s. They were always open to my input and I felt part of the process and respected for my expertise as my child’s parent. My daughter attended a private university and made the Dean’s List both semesters thanks to the customized approach from the Help Group.
My son, who is almost 18, was a bit hesitant. Mostly because he knew no one, and has some social deficits. But he came out laughing and talking. He met one young man who seems to be a VERY good fit as a good friend for him. They sat through several workshops together and have already contacted each other via the phone. I asked him how it went. He said VERY WELL. And -that he would gladly go again. We are certainly a success story for your event!
Normally this [filling out and submitting applications] is something that would make me feel really anxious, but I think that we’ve practiced enough that I feel pretty comfortable doing it at this point.
The job application that we filled out together today would have taken me months to complete without you.
I like coaching because I can really relate to you and you make it fun and enjoyable. You take to heart what you are working on with me.
