To leave a safer and more uplifting community environment for our future generations.
+ JUVENILE OFFENDER STATISTICS
The latest statistics for Juvenile offenders are in and they reflect clearly just how much work that needs to be done in regards to this particular area of our justice system.
As seen from the graph above, there are tens of thousands of our young people incarcerated and of those, many thousands of them are locked away for infractions that aren't considered crimes.
The goal here is simple: to drive these numbers down one child at a time. These children our are future fathers, mothers and leaders and as such, we have a responsibility to reach them and empower them to become the productive members of society they were meant to be and not the image of what negative circumstance has caused them to to be.

+ FOCUS: JUVENILE OFFENDER MENTORSHIP PLATFORM
Our Juvenile Offender Mentorship platform is one that is designed to implement a deep, cooperative dive into the mindset of the youth. While we intend fully to challenge the juvenile to accept accountability for their actions, we don't view our execution style as "tough love" as much as it is "smart love". We will conversate with them and not at them. We will show them the respect as should be accorded the adults we desire them to become. Below is our three-pronged mentoring plan:
Reset Value System: An individual's propensity to commit illegal acts has much to do with their environment and, as a matter of course, said environment has everything to do with the shaping of one's system of values. By working closely with these kids to reset their value system, the things they hold as priorities and in high regard, we can begin to turn the tide in what causes them to commit acts against the safety and orderliness of our society.
Reset Perspective: Outlook is everything when it comes to how we negotiate our life's path. When it comes to the Juvenile Offender, their perspective can be shaped and influenced by so much negativity. Our aim is to cut through the societal and psychological “noise” and aid them in seeing that the world is bigger and more bountiful than their singular circumstance.
Reset Possibility: The Juvenile mind is fertile, imaginative and innovative. Successful inroads made into the first two steps naturally sets the stage for the insertion of a new set of possibilities for the juvenile offender. Once positive and attainable possibilities are planted into the consciousness of the juvenile offender, a whole new world and reality is created for the juvenile to explore.

+ FOCUS: COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT
Engagement in our varying communities will be key to keeping our fingers on the pulse of what matters most to our young people. To that end, we make it a point to speak with young professionals, entrepreneurs and students to learn how, in spite of whatever challenges, they managed to steer clear of becoming a casualty of the Juvenile Justice System. This information is then taken back and presented to the at-risk or incarcerated Juvenile in a manner that 's both realistic and relevant as well as one that gives them a sense of focus in spite of their circumstance.
These young people are dynamic, ferociously intelligent and altruistically ambitious and it's one of my life's greatest honors to speak with and in some cases, mentor them.
