Teen Challenge Juvenile Boys homes provide a safe haven for boys ages 12-17 years of age with out-of-control behaviors. The 15-month program includes on-site schooling in a classroom setting, daily discipleship, chapel and worship. The young men are presented with opportunities for group and individual counseling, family counseling, organized sports and recreation. Leadership skills, developing integrity and the importance of work are learned through indoor and outdoor chores and responsibilities.

Common concerns of our parents have been the following:
  • skipping school, resulting in failing grades
  • abnormal lack of ambition and depression
  • outbursts of anger and destruction of home property
  • absence from the home for extended periods of time
  • stealing from family members
  • poor choice of friends and suspected drug use 
Juvenile boys Teen Challenge programs, through character-building curriculum and Christian principles modeled by competent leaders, assist each young man in turning his focus from "self" to service to others. We believe that the first change is a heart change... a knowledge that Jesus Christ has a purpose and a plan for each individual's life. Guided biblical studies, exciting chapel services, the daily discipline of chores, and regular attendance in our state-registered private schools give a once "out-of-control teenager" a second chance at attaining a bright future of successful living.
