Saint Jude Retreats is extremely proud of the significant changes the PREP Program will make in the long term future lives of our guests.
Amsterdam, NY (PRWEB) May 10, 2012
Saint Jude Retreats is proud to announce the completion of the new Personal Review Enhancement Program (PREP) Facility, part of St. Jude Retreats' expanded campus. The new PREP building includes individual class rooms, flat screen TVs, resource libraries, and a computer lab. The building has been transformed to host just PREP participants for individualized seminars and classes. The PREP course is only taught at Saint Jude's, an alternative to drug and alcohol rehab.
The new PREP building will host seminars, learning exercises, and individualized meetings. There are numerous resources available to the guests, including a library of motivational reading materials and a computer lab. The guests may use the computer lab to further explore opportunities they wish to venture into when they return home.
The PREP Program was designed as an additional learning program after the guests have completed the six week residential Saint Jude Program. Unlike drug and alcohol rehab, the Saint Jude's PREP Program focuses on improving any personal growth skills guests want to further develop such as confidence, dependability, commitment, attitude and forgiveness. These skills are taught in the original Saint Jude Program but are additionally refined in PREP. Additional services can include, completing a resume, obtaining a GED, finding health insurance, or even in some cases finding a permanent residency.
Rit Santelli, Career and Academic Advisor of the St. Jude Program quotes, "Some of our PREP guests just need that extra boost of confidence that the PREP program will give them, we are extremely proud of the significant changes this program will make in the long term future lives of our guests.”
