Mission Statement


Teen Challenge of Southern California Inc. is a non-profit Christan organization, whose primary purpose is to offer support and aid to youth, adults and familities with life-controlling problems. We endeavor to help by providing residential rehabilitation centers, counseling, outreach, Biblically based support groups, drug prevention through education as well as leadership training and development. Teen Challenge focuses on every aspect of the individual's life: spiritual, mental, emotional, physical and social. Our purpose is to help people discover a new and fulfilling way of life through a personal experience with Jesus Christ. Teen Challenge Ministry Institute and Won-by-One God SquadÂ’s mission is to connect caring adults to serve inner city youth and families by providing hope in a safe, nurturing environment, quality academic support, recreational activities and character building and leadership training to reach their highest potential. The program is designed to meet the needs of students who are most at risk of academic and social failure in their community.

Description


Teen Challenge is committed to enabling and equipping those we serve to find freedom from addictive behavior, to become socially and emotionally healthy, physically well, and spiritually alive and is one of the largest and most effective substance abuse treatment and prevention programs of its kind. •Teen Challenge Ministry Institute (TCMI) is a dynamic one year Bible Training and Evangelism Institute and is certified through Global University, Berean School of the Bible, for ministerial credentials with the Assembly of God. •Our focus is two fold: (1) to train students to become staff for Teen Challenge residential treatment centers across America and around the world. (Over 90% of the program staff in Teen Challenge centers throughout Southern California are graduates of TCMI); and (2) to train students to become ministers for the inner city. •TCMI is prepared to teach an individual these skills: (1) to know God’s Word and sound doctrine; (2) to be a leader; (3) to raise and manage money for the ministry; (4) to communicate the Gospel through various means; (5) to counsel others; and (6) to develop interpersonal relationships. The purpose of The After-School Learning and Children’s Prevention Programs is to prevent substance abuse and gang involvement among at-risk children and adolescents and attract and enable a new generation of young leaders to become world changers. The long-term goal for each child is the formation of a young person with life and leadership skills, educational and career aspirations, and an ability to learn independently. To achieve shorter-term goals, as soon as children become part of the After School Learning Program, they are set on a path for: *Improved grades and passing or excelling in classes *Strengthened analytical skills *Life and work skills development *Improved behavior and attitudes toward family, school and community *Sense of self-esteem and an ability to plan for the future *Drugs and alcohol abuse prevention
