Engaging and Transforming Communities
Restoring hope for youth in crisis by providing pathways to a thriving adulthood
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%.
Our Mission: The Four Corners Group mission is to reduce recidivism in the Cobb County Juvenile Court and Detention System through a multi-week cohort providing character education, job readiness training, and employment/internship opportunities. Our programming currently supports youth referred to us by the Cobb Juvenile Court System, alternative schools and Cobb Youth Detention Centers.
