Programs: Preparing for Productivity
"The field of preparation and the harvest of fortune are one and the same."
-A. Lawrence Haskins
What content informed this program?
Our data mining efforts with reliable organizations PrisonPolicy.org and ACLU.org as well as our ongoing dialogue with the judiciary, incarcerated and at-risk youth and prosecutors have shown clearly that lack of training to become a productive member of society is one, if not the biggest challenges our target group faces. Our response is to equip these individuals with the practical tools necessary to not only survive, but thrive, in the "real" world.
Where is this program implemented?
Alternative education schools, juvenile detention facilities and community programs that give exposure to at-risk youth. Our intent is to arm any juvenile citizen who, for whatever reason, has a disadvantage with acquiring the knowledge required to function as a productive and upstanding member of society.

HAVE LAWRENCE SPEAK
Second Chances Are Created
We designed the Second Chances Are Created program to give the juvenile offender the system of thinking and insight needed to see the value, importance and freedom in creating their own second chance.
The Value of Relationships
The Value of Relationships initiative is designed to compel the incarcerated or at-risk youth to embrace the the importance of building bridges rather than destroying them.
Transition to Success!
The goal of Transition to Success! is to provide tangible support in the early days of release that will greatly reduce the chances that the juvenile will re-offend.
