The youth take part in individual workshops or short cycle modules that seek to challenge each young person to be reflective of their actions...
Be conscious of their personal potential and be fully aware of what they have accomplished within the program.
A key component of the program connects clients with arts activities offered within the schools and community after they leave Detention. The program seeks to empower those young people identified as having artistic, creative, and leadership skills to explore and lay claim to those assets and find ways to translate them positively into the community after their release from the Detention Center.
Our goal is twofold.
1. Keep incarcerated youth actively engaged in programming to foster positive social interaction and cooperation.
2. Connect them with activities and resources after their release to help alter their patterns of behavior thus reducing the rate of recidivism.
