Our Approach - Young Adult Mentored Living

We know that in many situations, even though a teenager has become a legal adult in society, they may not possess all the skills to venture through adulthood safely. This age range, specifically, is subject to higher rates of depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, and other challenges. This program bridges the gap between leaving home and living independently in a college or a transitional setting.

Why Our P.R.O.M.I.S.E. Model Works

Imagine a world or just an environment where people kept their commitments. Think of how our lives would be molded if we trusted those around us. Would we feel safe and open? Would this be a place for change and great work to be done? Our Soulegria model is a proprietary model that identifies the areas which our students struggle. This allows our team to identify goals and objectives to help these individuals keep their P.R.O.M.I.S.E.'s.

Soulegria PROMISE Model

Our Location

This location is ideal in that many of the protections of the home setting still exist, however, the student is still expected to operate as an independent person. Students will also have the opportunity to recieve valuable leadership opportunities. A variety of skills to help build their future resumes. Based on the individual needs of the student, we will determine if they are in need of a more mentored approach or a simple daily mentored living arrangement.

Our location is advantageous in that we are remotely located amongst 7 private hidden dessert lakes at the footsteps of Zion National Park in southern Utah. These small lakes resemble our P.R.O.M.I.S.E principles and help us to maintain happiness or Soulegria in all that we do.

Besides providing a beautiful visual, serene landscape with tree-covered pathways, running rivers, streams, and waterfalls. It also allows our students the opportunity to be secluded from busy day to day life. This unique setting allows the student to focus on the most important aspects of their growth and re-prioritize their life. The remote nature of our program makes it easier for those overcoming challenges related to substance abuse, attracting poor relationships and overcoming anxiety and depression in a positive environment.

Our Model

As an alternative to wilderness program that teaches life skills to co ed young adults which allows them to transition into independence we know the challenges ahead of our students.

Our therapeutic approach is provided through CareVoy therapeutic services which provides 9 hrs of therapy each week for students.

Through this approach we find our intense program brings about greater change through structured schedule, experiential based learning and beautiful learning environments.

Keeping Our P.R.O.M.I.S.E. The Soulegria Model And True Happiness Defined

Where does the word “Soulegria” come from and what does it mean? – The English language is lacking to truly identify different forms of happiness, so we have helped to define it. This is where Soulegria emerged.

Parents often say, “I just want my child to be happy.”

We ask others how they are doing in order to gauge if they are “happy”.

But happiness can mean many different things to different people at different times. Happiness can be externally triggered. It can be based on thoughts, things, places, events and other people. This kind of happiness is very fleeting and conditional upon individual circumstances. For example, we can be happy as we eat ice cream, but then unhappy a few minutes later if that ice cream drops on the ground.

Happiness can mean so much more than this temporary state. This true, unconditional happiness is what we defined with the word Soulegria. This is sometimes referred to as peace or joy that comes from the inside. It is what we all are striving for. This happiness is making peace with who you are. It is a state of mind, body, and soul all working harmoniously together. If you have this peace, but you have nothing else, you can still be happy. On the flip side, If you have everything this world has to offer; possessions, pleasure, love, power, attractiveness, etc., but lack this peace and joy, you can never be truly happy. You will always be searching for more.

To quantify this state of unconditional happiness in life we must clarify the message we give when saying we are happy. To do this we make a distinct difference between the words used to define happiness. We have branded a word to define this unconditional happiness. It is “Soulegria” (So-Le-Gria).

To get technical, the word Soulegria is a derivative of the latin language of Portuguese and is chosen because latin differentiates the temporary state vs the long term state in their language. The latin language has two “to be” verbs; Estar and Ser. Estar is a temporary “to be” state like a feeling of (ie hungry/cold/sad.) Ser, on the other hand, is a more permanent state of who you are, not likely to change from day to day. For example, being a man or a woman, being an American, etc. The conjugation of Ser is “Sou.” Using “Sou” takes the “to be” verb to mean more specifically “I am” in the permanent state. We combine this verb, “Sou” with the Portuguese word meaning happiness or joy, “alegria.” “Sou” combines with “alegria” equals “Soulegria” when the “a” is dropped. Therefore “Soulegria” means “I am happy.”

Using the word Soulegria in our name we can proudly and confidently express that we have this unconditional joy for life. The young adults we work with are able to differentiate between the various forms of happiness and find peace and purpose in a life full of meaning and hope.
