We use a strengths-based approach
While youth come to us with specific academic, behavioral, social, and emotional needs to be addressed through individualized education, all youth have universal developmental needs. Our program centers on the four developmental needs of the Circle of Courage™ Belonging, Independence, Mastery, and Generosity.
