Center Point Day Program

Based at the Diakon Wilderness Center, the Center Point Day Program is a day treatment program that, like other Diakon Youth Services programs, strives to nurture change and growth in a challenging and supportive environment. The safe, community-based program features individualized programming for students who struggle in a traditional school environment.

Participating students choose from either a career and academic approach or a school-based focus. Both offer training and experience in vocational training and employment; evidence-based family and competency development emphases; on-site drug and alcohol/mental health counseling; and therapeutic leadership development through adventure-based activities.

The goal of the program is for every student to be a successful graduate and a productive, connected, and law-abiding member of society and the community.
