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.”
