EVERY STUDENT HAS VALUE
Inherent in Echo Spring’s program approach, is the belief that every student has something important to give to themselves and the world. They may not know exactly what that is when they first arrive on campus, but they will by the time they leave.
We treat our students like the intelligent, capable, and inquisitive young adults that they are.
Our approach hinges on introducing students to healing and growth in a multi-faceted and holistic way.
Students learn life skills, engage with the local community, enjoy the beauty of nature, and maintain employment. For many of our students it is quite gratifying to create a weekly menu and grocery lists for preparing healthy individual and group meals, volunteer in the community, take a hike in the woods, or earn a paycheck!
Many students continue their schooling. Some persue a GED and others take classes at the local community college.
Toward the end of Foundations, some create a resume, cover letter and seek employment within the community
Our students become positive figures in the Bonners Ferry community through volunteering opportunities.
They also participate in a variety of group activities at home, like our weekly, student-led potluck, which is always a favorite!
After a long week of hard work and growth, our students enjoy thrilling weekend activities that will vary depending on the time of year.
We believe that connecting with nature is good for the soul. Our activities includes:
Ski/snow board trips
When a student is ready to move onto the next phase of the program, he or she will create a portfolio documenting their growth and submit it to a panel of faculty, peers, and their parents.
