About Us

OUR PURPOSE IS TO MAXIMIZE TEACHING AND LEARNING IN SCHOOLS WITHIN JUVENILE JUSTICE FACILITIES.

Our Vision

We envision a more just and fair society, where all young people, especially those who are involved in the juvenile or criminal justice system, receive the support, care, and education they need and deserve to realize their full potential and pursue their dreams.

Our Mission

We serve as a catalyst for change in the way institutions and communities support young people in or returning from incarceration. Directly and through partnerships with public agencies and community-based organizations, we –

 

  • Equip incarcerated and formerly incarcerated young people with the academic, workforce readiness, and social and emotional skills they need to be free, successful, contributing members of their communities.

 

  • Engage people and institutions to fully welcome and support formerly incarcerated young people back into the community.

 

  • Educate and empower leaders to adopt and implement policies and programs that promote high-quality education, job readiness, and transition supports for these same young people.

Our Values

  • Trust: We work to earn it every day.
  • Resilience: Change is hard. We don’t quit.
  • Understanding: This is tough work. We listen.
  • Collaboration: We work with partners, on behalf of students.
  • Creativity: We believe in its transformative power.
  • Student Focused: We are committed to doing the right thing by students.
