Life Experience Preparation

Students at San Marcos may blend academics with real life experience via our onsite Deli Express and General Store operations. Both of these student-operated, instructor-supervised programs teach valuable transferrable skills, promote socially appropriate interactions with peers and authority figures, foster an appreciation and respect for the process of work and success. Successful participation may increase the likelihood of employment post-discharge in similar work environments.

These programs help provide young people for life back in the community. Employment post-treatment assists boys and girls in structuring their time in prosocial and productive ways in a manner far superior to just “hanging out.” These programs also enhance a child’s perception of self as worthwhile, both during and after treatment. Our goal is to focus on the whole child.
