SRS Program

The mission of the Give Back Organization for Suspension Rehabilitation Service (SRS) is to train and support schools in the implementation of positive, proactive, and instructional strategies so students become self-disciplined, responsible, and productive members of the Commonwealth.


Suspension Rehabilitation Service (SRS) strive to rehabilitate troubled youth from the absolute standpoint. The basic principles on which our program operates include: Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity and Personal Courage.


It is important to give the troubled young person the proper perspective about life. To genuinely re-educate an individual, one must present the total picture, helping him or her to see the need and purpose for change as well as how it can be accomplished. We believe that each individual with certain talents, abilities and a unique personality. It is our task to help young people uncover their true identity and capitalize on their strengths as well as recognizing their weaknesses.


Each component of our re-education program is interrelated, and provides opportunities for character development, responsibility training, positive reinforcement, success, encouragement, and a real chance to alter a young person’s attitude and lifestyle. But if there is one single component that we feel is the most important to our formula, it's this - Tough Love! For many of the young people who come to GBO SRS, this will be the first time they will experience the stability of a rigid schedule, discipline, and high expectations. They will learn what to expect and what is expected of them. Each young person is made to feel important, because they are important.


There is no question that students who exhibit challenging behavior also experience academic failure. If interventions are designed and implemented to directly teach academic (e.g., reading) and behavioral deficiencies, schools can improve students' academic performance and reduce problem behavior. "
