Seal of Transparency

Counseling Programs

Our Counseling services are as varied as the issues that arise for those having difficulty at home, school, or in the community. Trained therapists provide a variety of professional counseling services for school-aged youth and families, as well as young adults. Educational groups for youth of all ages and their parents are also offered. Some issues addressed include depression, anxiety, grief, family conflict, life transitions, self-esteem and parenting. Specialized services for high-risk youth are also available.

*Many insurance plans are accepted and special accommodations can be arranged for families who are struggling financially.

Prevention Programs

360 Youth Services is dedicated to helping youth make healthy choices and preventing youth substance use. Through highly recognized programs and initiatives – The Power of Choice, Youth Prevention Education, Naperville Operation Snowball, Positive Choices Positive Voices, Community Alliance for Prevention – 360 uses a variety of proven prevention strategies to best serve our mission and community in order to reduce youth substance use. 360 is funded by local, state and federal grantors to provide best practice substance abuse prevention for students and their parents in the geographic boundaries of the 203 & 204 school districts. These programs are supported through valuable partnerships with Naperville Community School District 203, Indian Prairie School District 204 and community partners.

Housing Programs

When housing is uncertain, everything in a young person’s life seems to fall apart. At 360 Youth Services, housing and support services are provided to young adults, 18-24 years old, who were previously homeless, and teenage boys, 13-17 years old, who are unable to live with their families. Support services including life skills, budgeting, counseling, art therapy and more are provided.

Mentor Programs

We know that having a supportive adult in a young person’s life creates more positive outcomes. Our mentor program matches adults in the community with residents in our Cornerstone Group Home and Transitional Housing Programs so youth can build a stronger network of support through trusting relationships.

LGBTQ Collaborative

360 Youth Services coordinates The DuPage Community Network: Professionals Serving LGBT+ Youth, a group of community partners that provide a safe and respectful environment for professionals and community members to network on issues related to gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth. For more information on this group, contact Carolyn Wahlskog at cwahlskog@360youthservices.org or call 630-961-2992, Ext: 1168
