C-114: Mr. Girard
This year the C-114 Family consists of twelve male students and seven teachers all working toward the common goals of individual and communal growth. Individually we are learning to apply our extant academic skills to real world situations, to expand our abilities to perform tasks around the house and on the job, to push ourselves to greater social and physical growth, to record our successes and use them as springboards to continued growth, and to save for our futures. Collectively we are learning to serve others through a range of group-based activities and our year-long association with Dog Star Rescue. By reflecting the light of our young men’s abilities back at them, we aim to foster self-love and self-esteem that might inform a rich and full lifetime of meaningful living. With equal parts hard work and laughter, we mean to show just how much potential these magnificent men have.
“Go ahead, push your luck; find out how much love the world can hold.” – Dar Williams
