Content of the Youth Program

The program aims to equip the youth to lead a balanced, drug-free life. Along with this much emphasis is placed on re-adaptation in the school and family system.

The following themes to live by are addressed: self-knowledge, managing conflict, school and work, managing group pressure and communication. Management of free time, a healthy lifestyle and the importance of sport are emphasised. 
A balanced daily schedule is followed and includes the following: lessons, sport, studies, relaxation, religious time in the evenings, personal care and sleep.

Structure and discipline form an integral part of the program.
Youths are responsible for making their own beds and keeping their rooms tidy.
