Connection With Others

Through our Soul Journey program for behavioral transformation, we helps families develop constructive ways to meet their needs for self-worth, identity, competence, connection with others, and purpose in life. Incorporating traditional hands-on methods of developing social consciousness and awareness, Soul Journey engages youth in exploring deeper aspects of themselves as individuals, as peers, as well as family and community members. Through diverse creative experiences, youth discover their innate gifts and talents, and have opportunities to develop them. Soul Journey works step-by-step to help young people develop tools for a new lifestyle and positive relationships that will support them in transforming their lives.

Our Program

In offering the Soul Journey Program, we recognizes that helping people turn their lives around also means working to restore the power of their families and communities to support them. They are encouraged to examine the consequences of their choices and actions on others, themselves, and their community. 

We also serve adults with mental health and/or substance abuse issues.

Soul Journey Experience

In practicing Restorative Justice, Soul Journey helps to create the value and power of communal norms and responsibility. All Soul Journey sessions begin with centering activities and a covenant of principles. This establishes an environment conducive to introspection, self discovery and mutual learning.
