A normal week day begins with reporting to the day room at 6:15 a.m., having already cleaned their rooms and made their beds. Residents are not awakened by staff but must get up when the alarm clock sounds. The boys first run a mile then return for showers and dressing for the day. During breakfast, the rooms are inspected by staff. After breakfast, boys begin to work on their assigned chores for the day. At 8 a.m., students report to the on-site school and non-students begin their assigned work projects. Lunch is served at noon and afterward students return to their class while non-students report for continued work projects. Youth-Reach has 26-acres of land, a poultry program and other animals that are cared for daily. Also, we complete all routine maintenance on our ten buildings, lawns and pastures. School is dismissed at 3:30 p.m. and dinner is served at 6 p.m. Residents who have completed their chores and other assignments receive free-time in the afternoons. Evenings are spent in topical Bible study, worship, discussion groups, and regular outings to sporting events, concerts, etc.
