The Teen Challenge program is based upon four principles:
- There is HOPE for troubled young people if they sincerely desire a change.
- Their troubles with drugs and/or alcohol, family or the law are only symptoms of the real NEED.
- They need to become WHOLE persons: mentally sound, emotionally balanced, socially adjusted, physically well, and spiritually alive. We are interested in each student as an individual.
- The ULTIMATE ANSWER to their problems lies in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
