Preparing For The Future

During their stay with Teen Challenge, students are exposed to new people, experiences and opportunities that will guide them toward a more positive, hopeful way of thinking about life.

Teen Challenge staff members and volunteers work with students to give them the tools they need to live a healthy life. The goal is to help students to discover their own creativity, skills and talents so that the allure of their addictions is replaced by something more attractive.

The work-detail part of the program affords students the opportunity to learn skills as diverse as,

  • Culinary Arts
  • Landscaping
  • Construction
  • Time Management
  • Team Work Skills
  • Fence Building
  • In-door House Painting
  • Woodworking
  • Farming and Ranching Labour Work

During the last 4 months of the program transition phase students receive help in resume writing, budgeting and goal setting.
