This is the result of the Healing our Community Forum. Everyone who came was all on one accord; providing a formula to help develop and implement more educational and employment opportunities instead of giving incarceration to our youth and young adults. We had representatives in the following areas; businesses, county and state agencies, community leaders, politicians and educators. – Youth Outreach Services is partnering with George Mason University Social Entrepreneurship Society, Job Corps, Target, and the State Department of Juvenile Justice to help reduce recidivism. The college students will help implement a 12 week job readiness mentoring program, they will do surveys, research data and give the results to policymakers; hoping that the state will use the information gathered to provide more funding toward education, employment, and rehabilitation instead of incarceration. We will have another Healing Our Community Forum as a follow-up to share the results of the student’s research in April, 2015 at George Mason University on the Prince William Campus.
