3 what do we need to start a day program

It is a very ‘low cost’ operation and is easyto initiate, especially in difficult start up financial situations when Teen Challenge is just setting up in a country or a city!

You need:

> one classroom (which could be at the same time your coffee house premises). It needs to be in the city

> one staff member (program teacher)

> Volunteers> YOU—the director
