Description

Philly Connect is a community based organization dedicated to intervening with at-risk youth before they enter the criminal justice system. Their mission is to change the narrative around at-risk and justice involved youth, combating the stigmas and traumas which often lead to a cycle of incarceration that extends into adulthood. Every youth participant at Philly Connect first works with staff to develop an individualized plan of improvement and success. Based on this plan, each individual receives a trained mentor who meets with the youth for 7 to 30 hours each week, depending on the identified needs of each participant. All youth are encouraged to develop two goals, one related to educational improvement and one related to employment. Additionally, mentors encourage youth to pursue their passions and natural talents, emphasizing the importance of embracing your interests.
