The PROMISE (Preventing Recidivism through Opportunities, Mentoring, Interventions, Supports & Education) program represents the most comprehensive thinking available to address socially unacceptable and/or school related infractions that could result in a juvenile arrest. The program is designed to provide academic interventions, a counseling component which focuses on the specific unwanted behavior, as well as social/emotional learning. Community resources are available to the students and families, which can address and serve their unique needs. Additionally, the principles of Restorative Justice are implemented, the development of pro-social skills are instilled and incorporated into the curriculum for the ultimate goal of improving positive decision making and resiliency. The PROMISE program is housed within the Pine Ridge Education Center.
