Youth Job Training
Our job-training program offers youth, that have already been identified as at-risk, an opportunity to work with a caring mentor to improve their ability to develop a positive attitude towards their future. The long-term goal of the Larry's Boys School Program is to empower the young person to break the habits that are leading to trouble in school and in the streets.
The Larry's Boys School Program is a program that is in direct response to the growing number of young people that are either falling through the cracks at school or are already entangled with the juvenile court system.
The goal of the program is to identify youths who are going to have a turbulent transition to adulthood and offer a positive support system to avoid the pitfalls that can derail their lives. We support program interventions developed through adaptations, refinements, and modifications of promising violence prevention and crime reduction models that are tailored to at-risk minority youth and young adults (15-24 years old) and integrate a problem solving approach.
