Is counseling offered? What’s the difference between counseling and the Alongside programs?
Unfortunately, counseling is not offered through Alongside. A simplified way of understanding the distinction is that counseling often pushes participants to reflect on and process the past, while mentoring, life coaching, and spiritual direction are largely focused on looking ahead at future decisions or present events in a participant’s life. Some participants may seek counseling in conjunction with, but separate from their Alongside participation.
