We're Here To Restore HOPE!
Second Chance Program
Often times when we reflect on the different events in our lives, we find ourselves thinking about how things would have turned out if we had made better choices. We may wish that we had the opportunity to start over as a completely different person.
In 2008, President Bush signed an order so that people serving a jail sentence would have the opportunity to be released from the jail system and be placed into an organization housing program to finish out their term.
Inmates that are apart of Brakin Out Second Chance program will have the tools to turn their past into a new beginning. Hitting the reset button on your life gives you a chance to reevaluate, regroup, and try again. It gives you a chance to consciously recreate a better day moving forward, as opposed to carrying all the negativity around.
It's so empowering to remember that you are not a victim of your experiences. We truly believe that you have the power to reestablish your life and become the best person that you can be. Hitting that reset button is a beautiful way to begin doing exactly that. We believe that every person deserves a second chance; just as God gives us daily.
Our program is designed to meet the needs of young men and women that are serving as either first or second time offenders within the juvenile court system.
Many of our young men and women has been failed by the hopeless hopelessly repetitive cycle of the juvenile court system, and they often times feel as though they don't have any other choice but to continue down the same path.
We are here to give prisoners and juveniles the opportunity to live in the real world and effectively practice and prepare to reenter society.
Become A Mentor
Mentoring, at its core, guarantees young people that there is someone who cares about them, assures them they are not alone in dealing with day-to-day challenges, and makes them feel like they matter. Research confirms that quality mentoring relationships have powerful positive effects on young people in a variety of personal, academic, and professional situations. Ultimately, mentoring connects a young person to personal growth and development, and social and economic opportunity. Yet one in three young people will grow up without this critical asset.
Become a better leader by learning how to wok with people whom you don't have a natural connection, demonstrating patience with those in need of guidance and support, helping people figure out the best path forward: which is all trademarks of a great leader AND skills provided through mentoring.
Mentoring is a unique opportunity to step outside your normal circle of friends and social media’s echo chamber to gain an intimate understanding of how the world looks through someone else’s eyes. New perspectives lead to fresh ideas, and who knows where fresh ideas could lead you?
