it is a good way to get involved in another persons life and be able to show them through lives struggles that you can still be the person GOD created you to be without picking up a substance to take the pain away.

The mandate of Teen Challenge is to provide a safe haven for recovering addicts for up to one year. There are caring staff who do go the extra mile to help. However, the management are not educated or eqipped enough to run Teen Challenge. Individuals are in positions that they are not qualified to be in.
Pros
Free lunches
Cons
Too much staff turn around prevents clientele from properly moving forward, as there is a definite lack of consistency in the program.

I started of by helping assist the kitchen manager with the prep for the meals. I learned alot about food handling various types of food. I learned how to be a responsible team leader. The hardest part would have been working in a fast pace when under alot of pressure. The most enjoyable is having interacted with different co-workers and their personality.
Pros
Wonderful atmosphere

A typical day would be booking doctor, dentist or lawyer appointments for the residents. I took care of petty cash and student bank. Was in charge of all the vehicle and house maintenance. Attended to all resident needs.
I have learned patience and how to deal with stressful situations.

My relationship with management and my co-workers was amazing. We were very much a team and we supported and had each others back in every situation. We all worked very well together.

The hardest part of the day was being on call 24 hours a day in a very stressful job setting.

Seeing the residents grow and change from the first day they came into the Teen Challenge Program to the day that they graduate a year later is the most enjoyable part of the job. Just knowing that I had a small part in that brought me so much happiness.
