Life in the Milieu: Promise Village is a Loving, Relational, Home-Like Place where Counseling is Included in Every Aspect of Daily Life
Promise Village is an extraordinary residential treatment home and boarding school for troubled adolescent and teenage boys. Located on 70 acres of ranch land in Davisburg, Michigan, about 30 minutes from Flint and 60 minutes from the Detroit airport, we are easily easily accessible from New York and cities across the nation. We use assorted forms of therapy in an eclectic model that lets us devise a program tailor-made for each boy. One of our key strengths is our Life Coaches, staff who live and work on campus with residents, being positive role models and looking out for everyday “teachable moments.” We call this loving, safe atmosphere the “milieu,” and it simply means that we surround your child with an upbeat 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 trust people. Having an animal-friend teaches empathy and opens communication, building relational skills that boys can apply later to human relationships. Dogs and particularly horses are the emphasis of our well-loved 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 boys figure out the reasons for their former poor performance in school, and then we mitigate those reasons. As they set goals for their lives and see how school makes those goals possible , they gain motivation to improve their grades. With an individualized academic plan for each student, support from Life Coaches and Therapists, and consistent attendance, students have steady, if not drastic, improvement.
Spiritual Development and PROMISES for Character Growth
Promise Village is a non-denominational faith-based program. We take care of spiritual needs as part of developing the whole individual. Residents work a step at a time through eight “PROMISES” principles designed for integrating personal values into their lives. In three stages, boys build on their strengths to make the values true in their own lives; then they encourage their peers to do so; and finally they transfer their progress back to the home environment.
