APPRENTICE (With normal progress an intern is invited to step up, this position is between months 5-8 months) Apprentice is a position of leadership where the individual has to start putting others needs and wants ahead of their own. This is the period where they truly start to learn that leadership, serving others, honesty and having good friends all go hand in hand. It provides opportunities to lead the other interns at our Christian based program.
MENTOR (Independent Living): only by invitation of staff. The mentor part of the program is where the greatest growth takes place. At this point these young men have learned ambition, accountability, leadership and have become men of integrity. At this point they have full privileges including, vehicles, phones, computers etc. They become involved in the community including, youth groups and activities. They can have weekend passes and privileges that fit them back into everyday life in a healthy manner. They continue to be drug tested and held accountable for their actions as happens on most high end jobs. Even though this phase of the program is only three months we allow them to stay for up to a year longer on our dime to help them stick to what they learned in our long term substance abuse program. This is the highest opportunity available in our program.
