Free online therapy is available through our partnership with Hurdle.

COVID-19 has shifted the lives of our students, parents, and communities without warning. We are invested in the health and wellness of the young Black males that we serve to be healthy young men. We understand that these changes can be difficult and want to be of support in the best ways possible.

We are pleased to offer covered therapy sessions to any of our enrolled YKLA students through Hurdle.
