Restoring hope for youth in crisis by providing pathways to a thriving adulthood
Four Corners Group provides youth who are recently released from juvenile detention centers, involved in the juvenile court system, enrolled in an alternative school, or have dropped out of school, with education and support to empower them to realize their full potential and live successful lives.
We currently collaborate with local juvenile justice systems in metro-Atlanta.
Upon release, few of these youth have the desire or opportunity to go back to a regular school. Less than 50% of detention centers provide life skills training and less than 20% offer vocational and technical education to residents.
Juvenile offenders are currently held in residential placement including detention and correction facilities across the United States.
Juveniles are more likely to reoffend than adults – recidivism rates are 70 to 80%.
