In My House....When a young man arrives to Ocean Tides, it is my special and unique opportunity to welcome him to my house. I always get a strange look for the newcomer and a pause. Then one of the other young men will clarify, ya, he really lives here and is around all the time. And I then say, let me know if you need anything or how things are going anytime….and his stay at Ocean Tides is off and running.
The joy or opportunity created by this being my home, with 16 other Christian Brothers, is that I do get that informal time with our young men, and I also get to watch the great work that goes on, not just during the typical work day. Perhaps I walk through the residential quarters at 8 pm at night and get a few casual moments with our young men or get to catch our residential counselors resolving a conflict or deescalating a misunderstanding between some of our young men. Perhaps I come over to help take care of a sick kid or take someone struggling for a walk on the rocks by the ocean. It is the opportunity to watch a boy care for one of my senior brothers during a meal and thank the young men serving in the Brothers Dining Room over the week end. At most meal times, I can walk next door to the other dining room and check in on things. Sometimes I get to take them for ice cream to talk, or a URI hockey game, or to drop someone off or pick them up from work, because at times you just need to get off the property for bit.
I get to see staff who stayed to tutor after school, or are offering an enrichment class in fiscal literacy, or life skills or music. I can watch our young men learn problem solving skills on the ropes course. I can check in on the progress of the group working to build their own computer, or the student in a quiet space reading because since he got his GED, he is taking online college classes to keep his education going. In good weather I can wave from my porch as the van returns from a community service trip. I watch staff share ideas and caring and wisdom in the causal interaction during causal times, or while sitting with kids at table during a meal. Relationships with caring folks is at the center of this Lasallian mission.
Overall, I get to affirm that our Lasallian values centered around touching the hearts of young people and caring through relationships is happening all the time here at Ocean Tides, and perhaps making this place a bit more caring and supportive for our group of teenagers.
Much goes on early in the morning, late at night and on the weekends. It is my privilege to be along on the journey of caring with these young men and support the adult community of Ocean Tides that goes above and beyond to care for the young men and support each other, we in fact welcome each young man...
... To Our Home.
