Life in the Milieu: Promise Village is a Caring, Relational, Home-Like Place where Counseling is Part of Every Aspect of Daily Life
Promise Village is an outstanding residential treatment home and boarding school for at-risk boys ages 10-17. Situated on 70 acres of ranch land in Davisburg, Michigan, about 30 minutes from Flint and one hour from the Detroit airport, we are easily easily accessible from Ann Arbor, Michigan and cities across the country. We use many forms of therapy in an eclectic model that lets us make a program hand-selected for each boy. One of our key strengths is our Life Coaches, staff who live and work on campus with residents, serving as positive role models and making the most of everyday “teachable moments.” We call this loving, safe environment the “milieu,” and it simply means that we surround your teen with an encouraging place where change can happen.
Animal-Assisted Therapy and Activities
Children and teens bond easily with animals even when they can’t or won’t accept people. Bonding with an animal-friend teaches compassion and opens communication, building relational skills that teens can transfer later to human relationships. Dogs and in particular horses are the main characters in our enjoyable and professional animal therapy, but our farm also houses exotic birds; outdoor cats; miniature goats, horses, and donkeys; llamas; and a friendly cow.
Boarding School for Boys that Includes Improving Academic Performance and Motivations
We help boys figure out the reasons for their previous poor performance in school, and then we mitigate those reasons. As they set objectives for their lives and see how school contributes to those goals , they have a new reason to do well in school. With an individualized academic plan for each child, support from Life Coaches and Therapists, and consistent instruction, students show steady, if not radical, improvement.
Spiritual Development and PROMISES for Character Growth
Promise Village is a non-denominational faith-based program. We look at spiritual needs as part of developing the whole person. Residents work a step at a time through eight “PROMISES” principles designed for introducing personal values into their lives. In three stages, boys build on their strengths to implement the values in their own lives; then they encourage their peers to do so; and finally they practice what they have learned in the home environment.
