New Directions provides teenagers with an experiential diversion program that equips them with the skills needed to better handle the stressors that put them most at-risk. At-risk youth include students with behavioral issues manifested in: absenteeism, high levels of disciplinary action, poor academic performance, bullying, and substance abuse.
Experiential exercises and challenge course elements are customized for your students’ specific goals and needs. Activities are intentionally sequenced to create a progressive, learner-centered program that meets middle and high school students where they are at developmentally.
Participant outcomes include:
"As the director of a youth development program, I enthusiastically support the work of The Browne Center. My students are always challenged to exceed their current team skills, in a supportive and warm environment. As the feeling of mastery is key to a young person’s overall success, The Browne Center’s staff consistently encourages each child’s efforts to succeed." - Youth Program Director
