Life in the Milieu: Promise Village is a Caring, Relational, Home-Like Setting where Counseling is Part of Every Aspect of Daily Life
Promise Village is an exceptional residential treatment home and boarding school for struggling adolescent and teenage boys. 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 Deland, Florida and cities across the country. We use many forms of therapy in an eclectic model that lets us devise a program tailor-made for each boy. The cornerstone of our culture is our Life Coaches, staff who live and work directly with residents, serving as positive role models and looking out for everyday “teachable moments.” We call this loving, safe environment the “milieu,” and it simply means that we embrace your teen with a positive place where change can happen.
Animal-Assisted Therapy and Activities
Children and teens bond readily with animals even when they can’t or won’t open up to people. Bonding with an animal-friend teaches compassion and breaks down walls, building relational skills that teens can transfer later to human relationships. Dogs and particularly horses are the emphasis of our popular and professional animal therapy, but our farm also includes 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 children and teens identify the reasons for their former poor performance in school, and then we take care of those reasons. As they set objectives for their lives and see how school helps them meet those goals , they have a new reason to perform well academically. With a personalized academic plan for each student, support from Life Coaches and Therapists, and consistent instruction, students display steady, if not radical, improvement.
Spiritual Development and PROMISES for Character Growth
Promise Village is a non-denominational faith-based organization. We look at spiritual needs as part of caring for the whole individual. Residents work a step at a time through eight “PROMISES” principles designed for introducing personal values into their lives. In three stages, children and teens start from their strengths to learn the values in their own lives; then they begin to help and serve their peers; and finally they transfer their progress back to the home environment.
