About Bethesda Lutheran Services - Bethesda Leadership Center

Primary Industry: Human Services

In response to an urgent need in Erie for a safe place where teens to grow and learn, Bethesda Lutheran Services established the Bethesda Leadership Center, with programs specifically designed for adolescents. The Center, located just one block west of Bethesda Trinity Center at 349 West 18th Street, takes a holistic approach to youth development by providing recreational, educational, therapeutic, and preventive programming while promoting optimal physical, mental and social health. The Bethesda Leadership Center is also home to the Erie County Independent Living Program, a collaboration between Bethesda and Family Services of NW PA, designed to assist youth between the ages of 14 to 21 who are or have been in foster care/residential placements services with the necessary skills for successful independence. The focus of the Leadership Center is to provide a neighborhood nucleus where youth and their families can learn to effectively manage stress and have fun in conjunction with being exposed to non-traditional types of programs. All activities will be guided toward the goal of supporting the continued growth of all of the participants, through the introduction of alternative or specifically focused activities that are not offered anywhere else in the area.

The Bethesda Leadership Center coordinates the delivery of services with partnering agencies, and provides family development services to help program participant utilize a multitude of community resources to meet their goals. The staff will coordinate and implement an individualized service plan for each program participant and their family and document service delivery.
