Every 6 months the youth sit down with our staff to create a plan with measurable objectives in order to progress towards independence. Each goal achieved is another life skill learned to equip them to live independently and be filled with hope.
Most Emmaus House youth have never had a family to teach them how to manage painful emotions stemming from abandonment, abuse, and neglect. Our behavior management program teaches the skills of self-regulation needed for them to manage these difficult feelings as they become adults in their communities, families, and workplace.
Life skills training
Without the basic life skills that one traditionally learns in a family, youth are often left to the streets, crime, and prostitution to survive. From cooking their own meals to living on a budget, Emmaus House equips our youth with the skills they need to live fully functioning independent lives in Haiti.
Emmaus House works with each of our youth to help them achieve the highest education level they are capable of to help them become the future leaders Haiti needs.
