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 troubled adolescent and teenage boys. Situated on 70 acres of ranch land in Davisburg, Michigan, about a half hour from Flint and 60 minutes from the Detroit airport, we are easily easily accessible from Ocala, Florida and cities across the country. We use assorted forms of therapy in an eclectic model that lets us make a program perfectly suited 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 making the most of 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 if they can’t or won’t open up to people. Spending time with an animal-friend teaches compassion and opens communication, building relational skills that boys can apply later to human relationships. Dogs and particularly horses are the main characters in 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 name the reasons for their former problems with school, and then we take care of those reasons. As they set objectives 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 boy, support from Life Coaches and Therapists, and consistent instruction, students have 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 treating the whole individual. Residents work a step at a time through eight “PROMISES” principles designed for building personal values into their lives. In three stages, boys build on their strengths to make the values true in their own lives; then they begin to help and serve their peers; and finally they transfer their progress back to the home environment.
