Open Sky is an appropriate fit for a wide range of young adults, ages 18 to 28.  There is no "typical" young adult in the Open Sky program.  For many, adulthood is characterized as a time of freedom and being on one's own, of being unburdened by parental constraints. For young adults at Open Sky this time can be confusing and difficult. Many of our young adults are motivated to make this full-fledged move into the maturity of adulthood and yet are hampered by self-doubt, lack of motivation, substance abuse, depression, addictions, or anxiety. With an individualized, strengths-based approach, Open Sky assists young adults in becoming healthy, capable, and confident young men and women.
