This is a program where the students learn to take responsibility for themselves and are given the responsibility of signing in and out each day. This is a leadership program, and in order to assure the quality of the program for those involved, inappropriate behavior will not be tolerated.
Each week the students are responsible for depositing their weekly allowance into their account. They must budget the cost of the pre-planned big trip, plan for the gas to get there along with the other locations of their choosing, and plan their community service for the week. The daily expectations are that they must: go off site daily, meet within their committees to ensure they are on track, and be physically active during the day. Two well-trained staff work with them to set and achieve goals and provide the transportation.
The platform for the program is life skill training and character development. They will walk away with experience in volunteering, mentoring younger children, effective communication, and how to be a leader.
