The reset your future Program is an intensive,
3-day, remote camp-based program for young adults who have a history of substance abuse and involvement with the justice system. The purpose of this program is not to provide substance abuse treatment services, but rather to provide relapse prevention services by assisting participants in developing the life skills and leadership-of-self needed to re-enter the mainstream of society as a productive community member.
Get 100% out of Life!
Using proven evidence based experiential learning models in combination with Association of Challenge Course Technology (ACCT) life imitating events and programs, from five to seven ACCT certified instructors and a minimum of two court-provided drug counselors will lead 40 to 60 participants through the rigorous three-day program. During this program, the young adults participate in seminars, ground-based initiatives and rope course activities that assist them in developing the life skills, communications techniques, and self-leadership traits needed to prevent engaging in future substance abuse.
The reset your future Program has two levels, Basic and Advanced.
Basic Level: In this first level the emphasis is on improving the life skills of the participants with an emphasis on the leadership-of-self. Here such leadership concepts as 100% Responsibility, Commitment and Integrity are learned in life imitating experiential events and ground based initiatives whose lessons will last a lifetime. Some events also introduce the participants to the basic concepts of how to lead others. Emotional work aimed at positive behavioral modification is included to open the doors to new and innovative ways the participants can approach life.
Also included are an additional variety of learning experiences to round out each individual’s kit of life skills, to permit them to be successful in not just overcoming addiction, but replacing addiction with self-esteem and self worth value, that are the best protection against relapse.
At the conclusion of the Basic Level of this program, participants receive a Certificate of Completion in Supervisory Leadership.
Advanced Level: To be eligible for this training, participants must have previously completed the basic level. Here they will learn how to lead without the Mantle of Authority, while at the same time mentoring and directing the basic level participants. There are specific events and tasks for participants at this level which reinforce the lessons learned at the Basic Level and begin to affect behaviors of the participants over the longer term.
At the conclusion of the Advanced Level of this program, participants receive a Certificate of Completion in Managerial Leadership
Key Concepts include:
• Judge everything by results, not by how it feels at the time.
• It is not the events of our lives that cause negative emotion, but what meaning we assign to these events.
• Leadership is a skill that is based in specific tools, and with practice anyone can learn to use these tools for
themselves and to benefit others.
• Failure is a tool for learning, nothing more.
• Self awareness, and a dedication to self-improvement are among the core keys to a successful life.
Research has shown that emotion is a key factor in learning, and that emotional states can increase or decrease learning and the integration of learning to behavior. Our events are designed to use positive emotion as a method of increasing learning, while demonstrating techniques for being aware of potentially limiting emotional states, and how to recognize and change an emotional state to achieve higher results.
Some events are specifically designed so that participants will understand some emotional states are produced by poorly informed childhood decisions about themselves, and how these decisions can be altered for the benefit of the participant.
Our final Premise is that repetition of these events in a program that is both repetitive and progressive at the same time, at prescribed intervals over the period of a year or so, enhances the retention of the lessons learned resulting in a new set of permanent life skills and behaviors for our participants.
Our program can be thought of as a three step process, including some redundancy at specific intervals designed to affect permanent changes in behavior and attitude that a single exposure is not likely to accomplish.
The fact that participants have a totally different mission during each attendance permits them to see each event and the overall program from a totally new perspective at each participation.
Basic Leadership Training: This is a course in the basics of leadership. The curriculum contains the fundamentals of leadership, styles of leadership, and an opportunity to practice leadership skills. Hidden within the training, is a focus on leadership of self, and a gradual discovery of emotional states, automatic patterns, the impact of these patterns on ourselves and those around us, and how to learn from and change our emotional state, and more. The participant will learn the basics of leadership and have an opportunity to prove to him or herself that these techniques work, and work well. During the same period, the participant discovers the power of self, the importance of moral courage, and begins to practice higher levels of awareness and communication.
Advanced Level: To be eligible for this training, participants must have previously completed the basic level. Here they will learn how to lead without the Mantle of Authority, while at the same time mentoring and supporting the basic level participants. There are specific events and tasks for participants at this level which reinforce the lessons learned at the Basic Level and begin to affect behaviors of the participants over the longer term.
Senior Leadership Camp is also offered wherein participants who have completed at least two of the trainings above are thrown into real life situational events wherein they alternately play the role of worker, manager and leader and get to experience a variety of challenges and develop the life skills to deal with each one such that they can take these skills into their daily lives which will assist them in creating for themselves the lives they truly want and desire. They will learn that limitations are all self-created, and self-imposed.
