Relevance to probation and parole l.jpg
Relevance to Probation and Parole

  • We are focusing not only on juvenile delinquents in the community, but also on juveniles that are at a susceptible age of becoming delinquent.

  • This project is to help raise the community awareness that we need more mentors for both delinquent and non-delinquent juveniles.

Believing in our project l.jpg

  • We believe that juveniles are the future of our community, and if we are not providing a good group of role models then we are not securing our future. After all the future is what we depend on.
