Individualized Educational Spiritual Social Plan

The Brigade Youth Program helps your child discover his or her own unique path, finding that special, guiding song inside that will help him or her face challenges, nurture spirituality and celebrate individuality within loving unity. Using an innovative, holistic approach called the Individualized, Educational, Spiritual, and Social Plan (IESSP), the Brigade will bring together a circle of spiritual, educational and social leaders and mentors to help your child grow into a confident, spiritual and caring adult.

Individualized: No child is the same. We will design an individualized, integrated plan to guide each child toward success, taking into account individual backgrounds and experiences and then laying out concrete goals and benchmarks.

Educational: No child learns the same way. We will work with each child to overcome academic challenges by building on his or her inner knowledge, supporting strengths, and providing tools to triumph.

Spiritual: No child is alone. We will help each child discover inner spirituality, moral discipline, and Christian values within a community of caring adults.

Social: No child is without community. We will support each child to develop love and responsibility for themselves and others, and to realize themselves as part of a loving community.

Plan: We work with the children to implement a plan to achieve these goals.
