Youth in Burlington's residential programs on both the Burlington and Beckley campuses are provided opportunities for spiritual growth. Staff includes a chaplain at both sites who works with youth to insure that spiritual needs are being met. The spiritual life program is a part of each child's total treatment program while in our care.
All youth are encouraged to participate in available spiritual life programs, both on and off campus. Christian oriented worship, educational experiences, recreational and fellowship activities are offered regularly on campus. Cottage groups participate in off campus religious services and activities in local United Methodist Churches, including Sunday worship services. Provisions are made in consultations with their guardians and family members for youth from religious backgrounds other than United Methodist to worship in their faith of choice.
We strive to help each at-risk youth in our care to attain these goals:
• A relationship in religious faith
• A relationship in the world
• A relationship with others
• A relationship with self
