Tel-jeunes' intervention model is based on "reality therapy". Tel-jeunes' professional counsellors do not provide ready-made answers or instant solutions, but rather work to equip young people to take better control of their lives. With the counsellor, the youth begins a process of reflection that will help them choose the behaviours that will allow them to meet their needs. It is a personalized service, based on the "here and now".  The tools and strategies developed during the intervention will be useful in the long term for the youth.
