Our programs are designed to keep the individual in mind. Each students struggle requires it's own approach.
Our Men's program is specifically designed to mimic real world experiences focusing equally on the expectations of adulthood as well as the importance of personal happiness, all while allowing for personal development, expansion of skills and independence, and empowerment of self.
Our Women's program mirrors the mens program in that it, mimics real world experiences, focuses equally on the expectations of adulthood and the importance of personal happiness, all while allowing for personal development, expansion of skills and independence, and empowerment of self.
Once a student has completed the 90-day minimum and has been assessed as appropriate for the Transitional Services, they can begin this process immediately. Here we begin a slow progressive step by step process of increasing independence and responsibility while maintaining oversight and guidance into the responsibilities of being a young adult.
Our outings are a great opportunity for parents and family members to connect with their son/family member! In these wonderful wilderness adventures, communication and understanding of one another is a focus.
Northwoods is proud to offer our Intensive Perspective Program. 21 days of immersion in Africa. Students receive a guided tour of some of the poorest areas of Nairobi, where they work alongside individuals doing what they can medically, socially, and economically to improve the lives of people in extreme poverty and despair, with no end in sight.
"Small daily improvements are the key to staggering long-term results."
