New Trails Group Home —
Programs for Boys Ages 14-19

The Mille Lacs Academy New Trails Group Home helps young men prepare for life back in the community. During this final stage of treatment, youth participate in employment opportunities, as well as educational and extracurricular programs that help them develop social and independent living skills.

Youth focus on problem-solving and decision-making, while they continue to address issues related to family, peer pressure dynamics, chemical use, technology challenges, vocational skill development, social skills development, independent living skills development, and healthy sexuality.

Each resident has his own bedroom, and supervision requirements are established based on individual needs, behaviors, and length of time spent in the group home environment. Youth are required to participate in therapeutic aftercare services designed to meet their unique individual needs, as well as individual and family therapy, as needed.

New Trails Group Home youth participate in employment opportunities, as well as educational and extracurricular programs, both at Mille Lacs Academy and within the community.
