What is “The Level System?”2022-02-02T19:18:25-05:00

The Julia Paige Family Center uses a Level System (Orange, Red, Blue, Green, Purple) to reward residents for good behaviors and attitudes, as well as give consequences for negative behaviors. “Yellow” can be attached to any level, if a youth is needing close observation due to self-harming behaviors. Weekly, a Level Committee consisting of direct care staff, therapists, and administrators, get together to discuss each resident’s week and how they have been doing. Residents fill out an application to “Level Up” if they feel they have progressed on their current level.
