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 exceptional residential treatment home and boarding school for troubled boys ages 10-17. Located on 70 acres of ranch property in Davisburg, Michigan, about a half hour from Flint and 60 minutes from the Detroit airport, we are easily easily reachable from Sarasota, Florida 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 child. 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 atmosphere 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 easily with animals even if they can’t or won’t accept people. Having an animal-friend teaches compassion and opens communication, building relational skills that teens can transfer later to human relationships. Dogs and especially horses are the main characters in our popular 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 name the reasons for their previous troubles in school, and then we lessen those reasons. As they set objectives for their lives and see how school contributes to those goals , they gain motivation to perform well academically. With a personalized academic plan for each student, support from Life Coaches and Therapists, and consistent attendance, students display steady, if not drastic, 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 child. Residents work a step at a time through eight “PROMISES” principles designed for introducing personal values into their lives. In three stages, boys start from their strengths to implement the values in their own lives; then they encourage their peers to do so; and finally they transfer their progress back to the home environment.
