A Message From Our Founder
What if…you could get the smiles, the hugs, and the love back…
What if…your family could be the way it was before the problems started…
What if…you could find a place here in Canada that would help your child turn their life around…
We ask these questions because parents just like you tell us that is what they want. Despite your efforts, your child has strayed from your family’s core values and beliefs. The struggles you are experiencing no longer matches your vision of a happy and loving family. The ideals you set for your child are not being achieved and might not be, unless the right path is chosen. We are all too familiar with the pain and stress you are dealing with now.
Throughout our years working with youth and families our team has literally spoken with thousands of parents who have told us heartbreaking stories of their child’s difficulties and resulting family struggles. Venture Academy was founded for families in need – loving and caring families, families who want to intervene and get help for their child before things get even worse. Our goal was to develop the best possible services for struggling teens in Canada – an all-encompassing and clinically comprehensive program that would actually meet the needs of youth and families and produce positive change.
Venture Academy was started by our founders from a deep personal desire to help families. They wanted to create a structure and environment that would produce the greatest possible success for each youth in the program and create the positive changes that youth need to successfully function in school, in the community, and at home. A program that made sense to parents who were looking for help, a program that spoke to their beliefs and value systems.
Our personal commitment to you:
- We will have open communication with you – you are part of the solution.
- We will incorporate your family values into our treatment and education planning.
- We will support you as parents and follow up with you and be there for you every step of the way.
- We will do everything possible to return your child the happy, loving person he or she once was and is capable of being once more.
Venture Academy opened its doors in 2002 and has served nearly two thousand families from across Canada. Venture Academy was the first, and maybe the only, successful direct access, private residential treatment program of its kind for struggling teens in Canada.
