Introducing Promise Village, a Professional Therapeutic Boarding School for Boys that Also Trusts God Has an Amazing Plan for Your Teen and Your Family. Though Not Located in Wisconsin, It Could Be the Right Choice for Your Boy.
If your family is suffering because of the destructive choices of a teenage boy, the fact that you are considering a boarding school or residential therapeutic program in Wisconsin is a constructive step toward beneficial change. At Promise Village, we have served numerous families just like yours, and we recognize your crisis. You dream about a better future for your son. We too know the promise in every child, and we can help him unlock his true potential. Even though Promise Village is not located in Wisconsin, we have seen that getting away from home and being immersed in loving relationships can lead to radically positive changes. While you consider your options in Wisconsin, and anywhere else your search might take you, we invite you to consider Promise Village as a strong choice.
Life in the Milieu: Promise Village is a Caring, Relational, Home-Like Place where Therapy is Included in Every Aspect of Daily Life
Promise Village is an extraordinary residential treatment home and boarding school for at-risk 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 accessible from Wisconsin and cities across the country. We use diverse forms of therapy in an eclectic model that lets us make a program tailor-made for each teen. 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 an upbeat place that promotes change.
Animal-Assisted Therapy and Activities
Children and teens bond easily with animals even if they can’t or won’t accept people. Spending time with an animal-friend teaches compassion and opens communication, building relational skills that teens can transfer later to human relationships. Dogs and particularly horses are the emphasis of our well-loved 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 children and teens name the reasons for their previous poor performance in school, and then we take care of those reasons. As they set goals for their lives and see how school contributes to those goals , they gain motivation to improve their grades. With an individualized academic plan for each child, 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 program. We look at spiritual needs as part of caring for the whole child. Residents work a step at a time through eight “PROMISES” principles designed for building personal values into their lives. In three stages, children and teens start from their strengths to implement 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.
