Summary of the " ARCH " Program?
A Project Base Learning Program that provides a series of community service projects to teach many life skills indirectly
Video Redirection was purposely designed for teens/young adults to do while they are in detention. Participants learn all phases of video production as a career field and are redirected in the behavior or infraction that lead them to detention. Puppets are used.
Community Service Projects and PSA’s can be developed and researched with the intent to carry out a project once released. Organizational skills, budgeting, team building, networking, collaborations, and communication are some of the skills indirectly are taught.
Everyone will participate in the 6-week basic training process with basic life skill trainings.
After the assessments are made each participant life skills needs will be verified and incorporated into their training folder. Afterwards other behavioral modification projects will be offered in conjunction with the basic training.
They will have the opportunity to either do a PSA Community Service Project or be entered into the Video Redirection Program
Programs will be developed by need
ARCH-Achieving Reachable Challenges & Heights
The Arch Program was developed to help underserved teens and young adults either in special education or have graduated from one. The purpose is to ensure they have all of the tools to become productive adults. As we were reserching to make this the best program around other stand alone programs has grown from it. Below are a few programs we have presented.
Life Skills-after the original assessment we will know what life skills are needed and they will be incorporated into their entire program. This could be but not limited to cooking, driver’s education, budgeting, grocery shopping etc., (This is the plus)
Job Placement-On the job training or 6-weeks, extended if needed.
Job Coaching-Once the participant has been placed in a job, our team will provide job coaching if needed
- Through this component of training we would like to offer on-site training programs within the detention and/or residential facilities
- Provide pre-release services and relationship building while young people navigate returning home while still in placement.
- Continue the program as needed once released
Anger isn’t the problem; it’s knowing how to deal with it.

The ARCH Program will establish behavioral guidelines, and positive solutions.
ARCH will work on the basics as well as self-redirection, below are a few of the key components to self-redirection
