We call the final stage in our program Interdependence, because while a well-rounded individual is self-reliant, he or she also embraces the support of a strong tribe of friends, family, and mentors.

Moving towards Interdependence
Interdependence is a highly personalized phase that will be driven by a particular student’s goals and preferences. This stage can last a few months or even a year or more depending on what the student wants to accomplish. Many students remain in Coeur d’Alene to complete their degree.
We continue to support
Students must adapt to living on their own without direct oversight, but the Echo Springs faculty is still available for mentorship and problem-solving.
Students have continued access to coaching and still participate in certain Echo Springs activities.
Students serve as mentors
We ask our Interdependent students to serve as mentors to students in the Experience phase of the program.
Mentoring is a gratifying experience for our Interdependent students.
