Elevations RTC believes that no student is an island - isolated, alone, with no connections.
Within every teen is a potential that can transform them into a creative and productive individual, contributing to society. Many teens go through challenges as a result of their environment or emotional/mental issues that block their progress.
Once these issues are identified and addressed, the child will be able to develop the correct mindset and set of skills necessary to help them grow and learn necessary social skills.
Elevations RTC also focuses on experiential learning. It has been proven repeatedly that kids learn best in an environment where they are introduced to concepts and ideas they can experience.
The concept of team building, for example, can be taught through text and visuals. But when students can experience what it is through activities, it helps them retain the knowledge better.
In turn, helping them practice using it in real-life situations.
At Elevations RTC, students access activities through carefully planned schedules. The activities are introduced in sequence so that students can build on their learnings.
Discussions and activities are presented in fun and engaging modules to encourage students to interact and participate. Activities are varied to allow students to experience different things based on their treatment.
Aside from in-house events, students also go on weekly outings and camping trips that give them opportunities to experience the outdoors and new environments. Through these outings, they also participate in community services, where they learn how valuable their contributions can be, no matter how big or small these are.
Giving back to their community helps encourage students to do better and be better. Help them become more productive members of their respective communities.
