Youth Care Workers

Led by our Student Life Director, Micah Downing, our Youth Care workers are trained in Non-Violent Crisis Intervention and are the front line of change in the lives of the students. Youth Care Workers spend the most time of any staff members with the students, living with them and teaching through mentoring, role-modelling, demonstrating life skills and overseeing daily function.

Education Department

Led by our Education Director, Tyler Dueck, our Education Staff are trained in Non-Violent Crisis Intervention and spend the day teaching and leading the students as they progress through their school work in our Qualified Independent School. It is our desire to help students, many of whom have historically struggled to engage well in school, strive for their full potential, both academically and in their daily lives.

Day to day life would be impossible without the people responsible for making sure bills are paid, phones are answered, and the food is plentiful. Doing their work around the students, the administration team are also role-models to the students exemplifying what it looks like to live a life of service and love to those around them.
