Each youth’s effort, attitude, emotional progress and cooperation will be evaluated by staff members. A score of 10 is needed in order to graduate. Youth who do not graduate will be encouraged to seek additional treatment at our agency. Youth who graduate are eligible for participation in our regularly scheduled programming (i.e. “Gifted Learner’s” Program, “Grades Up” Program, “Better Basic Behaviors” Program).
A critical part of the program is our parent education component. On each Saturday morning, a 1.5 hour parenting workshop is offered. The sessions provide parents with critical insight, child management strategies, resources and support.
