Build a cooperative and competitive spirit through individual and team activities and competition.
Strengthen social skills and build an appreciation for the responsibilities of citizenship, brotherhood, and the American free enterprise system.
Develop self-confidence; increase motivation, and create a desire for and belief in life-long learning.
To meet with, have fun with, and ultimately develop an appreciation for students and staff from other alternative program.
