Meet Emma
Warren County Day Treatment Intern | 2020

The Warren County Day Treatment program is meant for at-risk kids, some of whom have court orders to be there, where they spent time preparing strategies and learning behaviors that will help them do better in school. She explains, “The day treatment program is for students who need a more stable environment.”

Emma’s advice to incoming and current students is to not lose their motivation. “And do what you love. If I do what I love and it makes me happy, that will make my job a lot easier.”
