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.

Youth Outreach Services met with Congressman Rob Wittman’s Legislative Assistance, Julia M. Angelotti, on September 30, 2014 at the Washington, DC office. She was introduced to Youth Outreach Services strategy plan for reducing recidivism through employment and rehabilitation.

Youth Outreach Services has a History of Helping At-risk youth. Over the past 22 years, Youth Outreach Services has provided services to over 2,000 youth with a 86% of clients not re-entering into the Juvenile Detention Center.

Youth Outreach Services is inviting County Agencies, public and private sectors; churches and college students to help renovate a house into a safe self-sustainable community facility.  It will be a non-traditional career center with small business development where at-risk teens, juveniles and the homeless will have the opportunity to obtain job training and reenter into the workforce.

This innovative, community based program aims to help at-risk teens, ex-juvenile offenders, and young adults to break the cycle of recidivism by imparting the skills and knowledge they need to become entrepreneurs, leaders and productive citizens.

Youth Outreach Services provides a valuable framework of stability to trouble youth in Northern Virginia, as well as in other regional localities.  This organization engages youth whom might otherwise be prone to recidivism and gives them a chance to rehabilitate themselves through entrepreneurial training and exercises.  The results are healing communities, economic growth, and tax paying citizens.

The kick-off for the community connection   is October 25, 2014 on the Prince William Campus of George Mason University from 2:00 pm -4:00 pm.  Your organization or company is cordially invited to set up a Kiosk and bring your students, mentor /clients to come and listen to college students, community and business leaders and policymakers to speak on the “Healing our Communities Forum.”

This event will be taped by GMU Students to air on RETV (Reality Education Television YouTube Channel), local television networks; Cox and Comcast.  Potomac News Local  and Washington Post have been invited to come and do a cover-story on the “Healing Our Communities Forum.”

Fight Social Injustice

The  George Mason University Social Entrepreneurship Society invited Artist and Musicians to come and help them fight the social injustice against our teenagers who have made a mistake with the law.  Did you know that there are more than 2.3 million non-violent offenders who are incarcerated. The state is spending more money on incarceration than education. For some minor offences our teenagers are  incarcerated  for life with no parole.  We need to get to the root of the cause of the offence and address that need instead of putting them in juvenile detention center and not giving treatment for the cause. Do you think this is the right thing to do? Please view the video and share how you can help to bring a change to this social injustice. What is your answer? We want to hear from you in the comment section.

The GMU SES students are helping Youth Outreach Services to research the question , “To what degree does employment and rehabilitation reduce recidivism”, through an internship to teach the  12 week job readiness mentor program this summer.  The students are willing to mentor 25 ex-juvenile offenders and help them receive employment at the  Non-traditional Career Center.  They will come a part of the healing process by helping to renovate the facility, working at the businesses in the facility and  recording data to share their findings with policymakers and legislatures to help stop locking up our youth and  start educating them.

Please share your comments.

RETV Voices in the Woods

Last month, Elizabeth Charity had the pleasure of interviewing the leadership of the organizations with whom Youth Outreach Services will be partnering with to provide community outreach – Nehemiah House and Saved Hands Foundation.

In “Voices in the Woods”, Ms. Charity interviews Daniel Evans and Robert Zanders from Nehemiah House. They share the origins of the Nehemiah House and the needs of those who are presently living within the woods of Prince William County, Virginia. These needs are not always physical, as Robert Zanders mentioned, the primary mission of Nehemiah House is to “restore dignity” to those who are homeless. Jessica Kong, expands upon this subject in Part Two of this episode. Continue reading
