Future Men is a program working with boys between ages 15-20. The primary focus at Future Men is to help young men to grow out of troubled behaviors and grow into happy and successful young men. This change is made possible by the power of God, through Jesus Christ.
This 60-acre campus is located in southwestern Missouri, right next to Bulls Shoals Lake. This setting is ideal for the work done here, and particularly the extra-curricular activities, which include hiking, canoeing, camping, horseback riding, and paintball.
Students here are provided with Biblical counseling, with particular attention paid to developing Christian characteristics and principles. As boys learn to embrace these new teachings, they discard their old ways of thinking and acting.
Boys attend five regularly scheduled group counseling sessions each week, in addition to more individualized mentoring between staff and students. God can change these young men’s lives, as has been seen time and again, no matter what they are struggling with. Future Men specializes in dealing with teenagers suffering from anger, drug use, ADD/ADHD, ODD, Asperger’s, dishonesty, stealing, immaturity, and many other issues.
Academics at Future Men are accredited through the North Central Association Commission on Schools. Core class work is done four days a week, and students are provided ample time for studying and homework. Because enrollment is capped at 15 students, boys are provided with highly individualized and structured learning environments. Electives are also provided in addition to core classes.
