How Does It Work?

Tryouts: Mental Toughness Week

This week is our version of tryouts. You will be put to the test with a series of physical and mental challenges, meant to push you outside your comfort zone and test your character under pressure.

If you make it through this week, we know you are committed to changing your life and have what it takes to make a better future for yourself.

Phase 1: 40-Day Challenge

You’ll live in dorm-style housing. We provide food and transportation, and share the responsibility of chores and cooking.

During the 40-day Challenge, you will spend 5+ hours in the classroom each day, participating in financial literacy, work readiness, construction skills, and Bible study classes.

Every weekend, you’ll participate in a service project or adventure outing.

Phase 2: Get to Work

After getting the right job skills, most of our guys are employed full-time after just eight weeks in the program.

You’ll be getting a steady paycheck, so you can work toward buying a car with cash and saving an emergency fund.

You’ll have a new mindset and the confidence to clearly see the path to standing on your own two feet.

What Does It Take?

Mental Toughness Week

To be considered for our program, you must complete tryouts at Mental Toughness Week, five days of physical and mental challenges that show us you’re committed to the process.

We aren’t expecting you to be The Rock, but we do want to see you are dedicated and have the self-control to handle yourself under pressure.


You must complete an interview before being accepted into the program. It’s a chance for us to learn more about you and your story, and for you to learn how the program can change your life.
