Young adults are over-represented in many categories of justice involvement. Although they make up about ten percent of the total population, this age group accounts for over 29 percent of arrests. And people aged 18-24 were sent to prison for violent and property crimes MORE OFTEN THAN ANY OTHER AGE GROUP. These justice figures show a profound failure in the transition of many youth to adulthood, one which is experienced more keenly for some: African American young adults are fifteen times more likely to be in prison than those who are White, while young adults who were in foster care are over ten times more likely to report having been arrested at age 18-19 than young people in the general population. The cost of this failure is high.
WE ARE CHANGING LIVES
A Revolutionary Recidivism Reduction Program Targeted To Young Adults
Training is key. It is the essential step in the process of equipping our participants with a skillset they will bank on. We support our 16-25 year-olds through the certification training program of their choice. They embark on their educational journey with mentors, tutors and counselors by their side. We provide them with the all of the ancillary educational support and structure they need to complete their programs and obtain a certificate in a vocation. But that’s not where it ends. They leave our program as successful business owners. We immerse them in a revolutionary entrepreneurial program that will build them into bosses. Complete self-sufficiency and renewed esteem is the goal.
