Phase 1 - Youth Intervention


The youth intervention program is an extension of the youth (teen) community court system. It is designed to assist in developing necessary knowledge, skills, and abilities by providing a bridge to success through mentorship, education, and training. We recognize that an extraordinary number of inner-city youth lack the proper guidance, discipline, and direction to form positive behaviors that lead to success. Our goal is to provide the necessary tools by which individuals may acquire the needed development skills by offering the following:

EDUCATION

  • Male identity (male-hood, boyhood, manhood)

  • Female identity (female, girlhood, womanhood)

  • Achievement and Success-mentorship, selective reading, public speaking

  • Positive Behavior-self esteem, positive attitude, anger management,



JOB READINESS

  • How to get a job

  • Requirements to maintain a job

  • Accept responsibility

  • Respect leadership

  • Cooperation with co-workers


TEAMWORK

  • How to communicate effectively

  • Role play

  • Music & Art Workshops


FIELD TRIPS

  • National Underground Railroad Center

  • Cincinnati Art Museum

  • Taft Theatre

  • Public Library


(Activities will include parent/guardian participation and consent)









Phase II Adult Re-entry Program

This segment of the program is designed to assist young adults, ages 18 – 35 with developing and utilizing their skills and enhancing their abilities. This segment supports individuals, male and female by assisting in providing an environment that is conducive to positive thinking and making wiser life choices.

Our focus is on the young adults in the inner city, specifically those who reside in the Avondale community. These young people in large numbers have given up because of their inability to gain employment or to complete their education. Our goal is to simply provide a path and direction that will lead to success. They just need some means to get beyond the barriers that hold them back.

We recognize that many have been cast aside and considered undesirable. We are of the opinion that each person can succeed with the right guidance and opportunity. If we take the time to invest in individuals now, we will reap the reward of productive citizens in the future. Replacing I can’t with “Yes, I can,” demonstrated through mentorship and positive examples.

  • Communication skills – Oral and Written

These are some of the areas that will benefit each individual in improving their status in the community and allow them a better opportunity for success.
