In our modern educational systems, overwhelming emphasis is placed on the acquisition of skills and knowledge that will enable young people to find a job or practice a profession. Preoccupation with this aspect of education hides the deeper and more important role of education which is to help develop the universal traits of human character in children. These include confidence, compassion, courage, integrity, kindness, respect, tolerance, optimism, selfless service, and all the other qualities that bring peace, happiness, and success to oneself, one’s family, and society.
Our Young Adult Masterclass Program is a 4 year program that holistically invests to fulfill the individual young person’s social-emotional well-being, dreams, education, work-learn experiences and safely transitions them to prideful independent living through Experiential and Social Emotional Learning. Social Emotional Learning is the process through which Youth acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.
Program begins at the request of Department of Child Safety (DCS) to meet the needs of Transition Age Youth dually enrolled in DCS and Health Care Assistance. Enrollment begins for young adults ages 14-17 with continued support service until the age of 25, provided the student remains in good standing.
