JUVENILE JUSTICE

YFC’s Juvenile Justice program was developed to increase the effectiveness of the organization in working with young people who find themselves in situations and communities where positive outcomes in life are far from certain.  Mentoring has been utilized by YFC as a method for addressing the profound challenges faced by program participants through creating the opportunity for them to interact with loving and responsible adults who are committed to fostering positive life-changing influences for these young people.

OBJECTIVES

  • Provide enrichment programs that focus on practical issues and a realistic approach to help youth permanently erase destructive habits by recognizing and choosing healthy environments for spiritual, mental and physical development. Reinforcing positive habits and behaviors as youth encounter problem solving obstacles and challenges.
  • Offer young people the chance to develop a relationship with one or more adults who become friends, role models, life coaches, and advocates for successful transition back into community, schools, churches, and neighborhoods.
  • Focus on helping youth accept their responsibilities and realize their potential while maximizing strengths
  • Increase a youth’s awareness of educational, cultural, recreational, career and entry level job opportunities, and introduction to new networks and community
