We want to divert youth from the juvenile justice system, expunge their records, and provide education and resources to improve their quality of life. We posit that poverty, lack of guidance, school failure are three causes of juvenile delinquency. Second Chance provides education, job training, and mentors to help youth navigate adolescence without becoming a victim of boredom and anger.
Mentoring & Service Learning with a purpose
Mentors make a Difference by improving the social and emotional disposition of students. Adolescence is a very difficult time for many youth; mentors fill the void of missing parents; they provide comfort to youth who need to talk; they provide guidance to youth making basic life decisions without the supervision of a counselor/advisor.
