Inside Lighthouse events offer unique opportunities to learn more about the many ways Lighthouse serves young people and families to help them succeed.

This month, the focus is on Lighthouse Youth Center at Paint Creek in Bainbridge, Ohio. Lighthouse Youth Center at Paint Creek is a community-based option for boys ages 15-18 who have been adjudicated delinquent by a juvenile court in Ohio. The campus in rural Bainbridge, Ohio has no bars, wire fences, or guards. Security is achieved at the Center by maintaining a very structured program and constant staff presence. While on the residential campus, youth receive cognitive behavioral treatment interventions, mental health, sex offender specific, and substance abuse treatment- all designed to target criminogenic risk factors and teach youth how to manage their own behavior. Highly trained staff has a proven record of successfully treating youth who are sex offenders. Many of the boys complete high school coursework and earn a high school diploma while attending Paint Creek Academy, a charter school on campus. There are also opportunities for paid onsite work experience to enhance employability skills.

The event includes a meal and an engaging information session with our CEO, a team member with expertise on the highlighted program, and a tour. If you are interested in attending this Inside Lighthouse event, please contact Deborah Stevens at (513) 475-6026 or dstevens@lys.org. Transportation is provided.
