The Full Story
To meet the diverse needs of emotionally disturbed children and young adults, Future Leaders In Training (FLINT) has developed and incorporated an independent living program and community center for treatment. Our independent living program is available to young adults transferring out of the foster care system into society. We provide intensive treatment programs that incorporate clinical treatment services individually and in group settings.
Our community resources program is designed to provide educational training, supervised social interaction, and mentorship to develop productive citizens. Our treatment curriculum for behavioral and mental health issues is executed by Licensed Clinical Social Workers and Master’s in Social Work therapists who are certified peer specialists.
Participating youth can engage in a family and community lifestyle without causing danger to themselves or others. We utilize a hands-on approach to teaching life skills with role play followed by questions and answers, open floor discussions, and video presentations.
Our primary goal is to enable clients to overcome emotional, behavioral and/or psychiatric difficulties by providing highly supportive and flexible treatment services. FLINT encourages and administers family interaction and community services with trained professional because teamwork makes the dream work.
Future Leaders in Training (FLINT) strives to proactively prepare young lives for a rewarding future through day-to-day, interactive, practical application in real life situations. FLINT youth participate in everyday group projects that always, at some point, present challenges, disappointments, and difficult moments to conquer. Demonstrating behavioral techniques that foster compromise and determination leads to more productive decision-making patterns that traverse to future success. Our theory is that productive leadership is a byproduct of vision, illustration, and commitment, followed by proper action on a consistent basis. This model is the springboard from which FLINT flourishes.
Future Leaders in Training looks forward to a day when all youth can work together toward collective advancement for all without breeding assault, injury, or death.
