Programs: The Value of Relationships
"The bridges we build can lead us to worlds we could have scarcely imagined ... The ones we burn can prevent us from those things we fear to even hope for."
-A. Lawrence Haskins
What content informed this program?
Our ongoing dialogue with incarcerated juveniles, corrections officers and the judiciary inform us that, when it comes to making life-altering decisions, very little weight or consideration is given to the existing relationships that said decision will affect. Our response is to show the incarcerated juvenile the value of these relationships and why they are not worth sacrificing for a quick high or a fast buck.
Where is this program implemented?
Alternative education schools, juvenile detention facilities and community programs that can provide us exposure to at-risk youth.
