Hostels

Our Girls Training Center in Aminjikarai and Boys Industrial Training School in Pallavaram (both Chennai) offer Hostel facilities for a small percentage of our students who need boarding. We provide a safe environment for the young women and men to study, develop their personality, enjoy and learn to cope with life’s challenges.

Our experienced staff make sure that there is space for emotional development, personal guidance, love and concern for the many individual challenges which teens are facing these days. And then – of course there is fun and friendship too, as they live, study and occasionally do some practical work together.
