Sports and Recreation: Treating the Entire Person

At George Junior Republic, we seek to engage the entire person as part of our treatment program. We believe that sports and recreation play a key role in facilitating good health and positive social interaction, particularly in a group home setting. Through involvement in various recreational activities, youth can develop self discipline, build self esteem, and learn to trust others.

The primary emphasis of George Junior Republic’s sports and recreation program is to give each youth the opportunity to become healthier while improving his attitude, character, and behavior through intramural and varsity sports, club activities, and off campus events.
