PRN for Families is excited to announce that our collaboration with Voyageur Outward Bound School (VOBS) will continue into its second season. Families who enroll in Voyageur Outward Bound’s Intercept courses will have the opportunity to take advantage of a post-course support program, offered exclusively to Intercept families by PRN for Families. PRN for Families, a therapeutic industry expert in home-based outreach and transition services, will provide guidance, support, and case consultation to families that build off of the Intercept experience.
Through this collaboration, PRN for Families will provide customized transition support to participants of Voyageur Outward Bound School's Intercept courses, which is specifically designed for teens or young adults who may be struggling at home, in school or in other settings, as well as to their families. Intercept is a highly structured and facilitated program that removes students from the stressors and challenges of school, home, and peer relationships, and instead presents them with the healthy risks and real challenges of the natural world. Intercept courses focus on communication, conflict resolution and decision making tools.
Families benefit from targeted therapeutic support and guidance as they navigate the transition home, and through this collaboration, PRN for Families will be able to extend the support these families receive beyond the wilderness and into the home. PRN for Families’ services are designed to support families in sustaining and further developing the lessons, tools and resources they have gained through their participation in the Intercept program. PRN will provide structured transition plans, parenting support and daily mentoring calls for the student, as well as other customized support services to families who participate in the Intercept program.
