We are presently funding a number of programs to help young people develop skills that can help them not only in the juvenile home, but after they leave. These include reading programs, music therapy, Junior Chefs, gardening and more. 

About our reading programs:

Our nationally recognized program, "The Late Show", is a community story hour for youth detained in the juvenile home. The "Diversions" literacy program offers parents and siblings of youth in the Juvenile Home the opportunity to improve literacy skills by reading and discussing interesting books, receiving subscriptions to magazines and newspapers and learning to read as a family.

"The Late Show" is a nationally recognized program which offers youth at our foundation a community story hour to teach and inspire.

Renowned authors of adolescent books are brought into the facility to discuss their writings and to encourage our young people to read and devlop their own writing skills.  This program is in partnership with the Kalamazoo Public Library.  It is necessary to "teach kids to read so they can read to learn."

We have an opportunity at a critical time to change the lives of youthful offenders from "future prisoner" to "future employee".

But we need your support to help us expand our literacy development programs, such as more reading specialists, mentors in the community, scholarships for young people who seek a higher education and vocational skills training.
