A brainstorming process occurs that targets the goals of the youth and family; an action plan is developed in which specific items and timeframes are agreed upon to provide services and allocate resources for the youth/family. An example of the broad range of ISST resources that have been provided in the past include things such as academic tutoring, counseling support, employment skills training, internship placement, scholarships for extra curricular activities, after school programming, mentoring partner, interpreter, art lessons, summer activities, medication, wheelchair lift, etc.
