Transport Services for At Risk Teenagers
Hundreds of at-risk teenagers disappear every year. When your child is missing, you need to find out what happened immediately. She or he may or may not have disappeared by their own choice, but they need to be found – FAST. At Next Step Youth Transportation, we know the importance of locating your missing child as quickly as possible, and will then ensure that he or she is transported safely and securely to the at risk youth program of your choice.
As a rule, the longer you wait to pursue recovering at-risk teenagers, the less the odds are that they will return safely and unharmed. Law enforcement will do everything within their power to find runaway children, but they don’t always have the resources to dedicate an investigator to your specific case. At Next Step Youth Transportation, we work with the team of private investigators from our sister company, She Spies Private Eye, specifically dedicated to finding your child, and we offer world-wide child transportation services to make sure your child is safe and sound. She Spies will find your child; Next Step will transport your child to wherever you choose.
What You Need to Know about Runaways and At-Risk Youth Programs
The process for finding a runaway is different than finding a missing person. Most times, a runaway doesn’t want to be found. And since a good majority of runaways are minors, there are fewer records we can rely on to help us in our search efforts. To get the information we need, we employ an intensive investigative strategy that includes tactics including but not limited to:
- Canvassing the internet
- Scouring your at-risk teenager’s computer for data and website history
- Examining cell phone records
- Interviewing friends, family and teachers
- Contacting shelters and hotlines
- Checking the manifests of bus transportation companies
- Posting missing person flyers
- And other techniques appropriate for the circumstances of your missing runaway.
Once the team from She Spies locates your child, we can help you with the appropriate referral sources to help you decide which at risk youth program will be best for your child. Getting the best possible help for at risk youth is what Next Step Youth Transportation is all about.
At-Risk Child Transportation Services
When the difficult decision of sending your child or family member to a therapeutic boarding school, wilderness programs or other designated treatment facility designated by the parent, how they will physically get there is often a concern. It is common for the relationship to have broken down to a point where the child is not willing to honor the wishes of the parents. The child isn’t likely to just smile and hop into the back of the family sedan. In fact, they often threaten to run away or even hurt themselves or others.
With a strong background in juvenile probation cases, we at Next Step Youth Transportation are experts in the escort and transport of at-risk youth. We ensure the safe and reliable transportation of the child or teen to the desired destination, whether by car or plane. Your loved one will be escorted by trained professionals, not only in the physical aspects but also in the emotional and psychological to make the transition as smooth as possible for all.
