A common phrase among the hundreds of thousands of incarcerated youth and adults in our country is "Nobody cares about me." Partner with us to serve as a mentor to individuals who have been thrown away by society until now.
Our mentors often serve as one of the only positive influences in the life of at-risk youth involved in the juvenile justice system. Change the life of a child by providing a sense of support and encouragement, helping them to recognize their worth and the opportunities available to them in the world.
Formerly-incarcerated adults often experience a lack of support when they return to their communities after a period of incarceration. Without support and guidance, a majority of formerly-incarcerated adults turn back to crime as a means of survival, as they often do not know any other way of life. Providing a sense of support and encouragement to these individuals as they serve their sentences and transition back into their communities can make all the difference.
