VisionQuest has over 40 years of experience delivering highly successful innovative programs to at-risk and juvenile youth. Our programs are successful because we combine the best of old traditions with the best of the evidence-based practices.
Our history is rooted in American Indian culture. In American Indian traditions, the vision quest is a rite of passage that marks the transition from child to adulthood. VisionQuest has adopted many American Indian traditions over the years to help troubled teens and their families grow together. All of our staff, regardless of position, participate in the various traditions that make up the fabric of our organization.
Within the context of this fabric, VisionQuest is constantly seeking better ways to deliver services. We have long embraced the use of evidence-based methodologies as a means of effectively responding to the needs of at-risk youth and their families. These evidence-based practices are “tried and true” methods of effectively reaching troubled youth and their families.
