Program Overview

OUR PROGRAM

New Life For Youth operates a four-phase Christian growth program with an optional fifth phase for those interested in pursuing ministry training. We have found that the current program we offer plus the extra months of post-graduate training has been the most effective way to help the student meet their needs.


PHASE 1 – ORIENTATION:

The orientation phase is a minimum of 3 months. This includes a probationary period of one month for the student to adjust to the residential and structured nature of the program. At the end of this trial period of 30 days, there will be an evaluation by the Program Department as to the student's progress. A decision will be made at this time whether continuing the program is the best plan for the individual and the program.



PHASE 2 – INDUCTION:

The induction phase involves a minimum of 3 months with pra, teaching (individual and group), vocational training, Bible studies, Chapel services, recreation, etc. In order to complete this phase, the student is expected to follow instructions, have a teachable attitude and respect for the people around you.


PHASE 3 – TRAINING:

The purpose of this three-month phase is to prepare the student for a successful return to society. At this point in their program, the students must learn to face everyday circumstance and problems appropriately, and show continued growth and stability. Each individual receives vocational and academic training, practical mentorship,life-skills training, and must participate in community involvement and awareness activities.

To complete this phase you will be showing that you can:

  • accept personal responsibility
  • make wise choices
  • be self-motivated
  • show initiative
  • have tangible goals for the future
  • complete the academic goals for this phase
  • demonstrate the ability to apply and carry out the principles that have been learned in the program

PHASE 4 – RE-ENTRY:

During the last month and prior to the completion of phase 3, the student is assessed and plans are made for the re-entry program that will prove most beneficial for the student. Each re-entry program is unique and is designed to fit the student’s specific needs. The Dean of Students and/ or Director will assist in the student's re-entry plans. Some examples of re-entry may be:

  • Employment
  • Technical school or College
  • New Life For Youth Internship

 

 

 

Referrrals and students come from many different agencies and avenues, for example Churches, Counseling Centers,the Department of Justice, hospitals and health centers anywhere in the USA. We are not limited by distance.
