Youth for Christ has been given the opportunity to teach Christian principles and values in all of the units throughout the Juvenile Hall.  We currently  have one full-time volunteer that teaches during the school day, and twenty-two volunteers  that  come in for Monday Bible study and Tuesday night one-on-one meetings.   Please continue to pray that the right volunteers are cleared to teach in the Juvenile Hall during the school day.

We are also providing follow-up after care at a local community center.  One of the main problems with Juvenile offenders is the lack of after care and follow-up.  We now have a comprehensive follow-up program that allows for the youth that were in custody to stay in contact with Youth for Christ, and continue to receive spiritual counseling and life guidance. 

Finally,  we are able to do specific case-management for our extremely high-risk  youth once they are released from Juvenile Hall.  Without direct intervention, many of these youth  would  be dead within the year.  Case management involves being the direct supervisor that ensures  the youth receives the care that they need once they are released.  This care includes sponsering the youth in residential drug treatment facilities and programs like Teen  Challenge.  Consequently,  the youth can leave the area- which often includes toxic living environments to work on a complete life change. 

Because of the numerous Christian programs now at the Juvenile Hall, we have about 80 first-time commitments to Christ per month.  The spiritual need for our youth is extremely high.   We are praying that the commitments made at the Juvenile Hall will continue to grow in the Lord once they are released, and that the youth will continue with the follow-up care we provide.
