Restoring hope for youth in crisis by providing pathways to a thriving adulthood
Four Corners Group seeks to decrease juvenile recidivism and end the school-to-prison pipeline by providing youth with education, support, and empowerment to realize their full potential and live successful lives. We serve youth who are:
- Historically underserved and facing challenges
- Attending Title I schools
- Dropped out of school
- Enrolled in an alternative school
- Recently released from juvenile detention centers
- Currently involved in the juvenile court system or juvenile facilities
Through prevention, intervention, and restoration we work to provide 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%.
