OUR
Mission

Our mission is to reduce recidivism in youth returning to the community from incarceration by helping them obtain employment.

 

We assume that:
1. Undergraduate students are uniquely qualified to serve as positive role models for youth in the justice system;
2. Collaboration among community organizations, facility service providers, and the family and guardians, promotes effective community reentry;
3. Comprehensive and sustained support during and after incarceration increases the youth's positive engagement in the community and protects against recidivism.

OUR
Philosophy

Our Philosophy:

 

Many youth who have experience in juvenile correctional facilities return to their communities without the essential social and career skills that are needed to obtain and maintain a job.

 

Youth who are positively engaged in their communities, especially through employment, are less likely to be re-incarcerated but they need support to learn the necessary skills to obtain and maintain employment.
