Mission

Project AIZ2 is organized with a passion and focus on youth. Our emphasis; understanding youth, juvenile offenders, and ministering within the juvenile justice system and in re-entry to the community. Particular attention is given to understanding one's own issues of pain, resentment, anger, un-forgiveness and prejudice. Discovering individual learning styles through the use of individual assessment tools, and mentor coaching the youth will also develop effective decision making skills.

Notes from the Nonprofit

On behalf of AIZ2, I would like to thank you for your support and contributions to the vision, mission and purpose. Your donations will go a long way to help the youth of our community become better citizens while fighting hand to hand to make their lives, dreams and goals come true. A progress report on the growth and impact of this program will be updated via our website monthly. Please take the time to stop by and see where your donations have blessed us. Again, thank you for your support, as we take pride in the accomplishments of our staff and the people we we serve. Dr. Danette M. Vercher, Ph.D., CEO/Founder

Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

We aim to step up and do our best to help our community fix the problem. We're asking the community to engage with us in the fight against this growing youth life killing disease, by teaching, training and instructing through workshops that are geared, and grounded in Scripture (Colossians 1:13 KJV), research, evidence on resilience, transformational change theory, brain science and positive youth development. Translating the latest research into practical methods for creating transformational environments and interactions that are proven effective for even the most challenging youth. There are a myriad of complex internal and external risk factors that contribute toward delinquency in children. AIZ2's focused attention is given to understanding the impact of dysfunctional family systems, over stressed communities, learning and mental health issues, disproportional minority containment and gangs.

To gather the most dynamic, prolific educators and material to create a life changing experience that youth will be able to carry throughout their lifetime. Finally we partner with career centers and trade universities and perform career interests. The final stage is determining the feasibility and design of participant's level of commitment and dedication.

Organizing a vast pool of volunteers that have witnessed the positive outcome of Dr. Danette M. Vercher's life in limited settings and with limited resources. These volunteers are former correctional officers and state workers personally brought troubled youth to hear her message of belief, behavior and life changing impact, that inspires drug using violent youth to join the military, attend college, and become community mentors.

Everyone is committed to seeing a life touched and streets become safer. Former sheriffs, prison counselors, officers and chaplains have joined the passion of Dr. Verchér in the work of the juvenile justice system to make a safer America. We hold and maintain that our position is not taught on crime. We hold and maintain that every youth has the potential to become a tax-paying leader in America, and we can help them to discover their potential and the discipline to make a positive impact inside of themselves and in their communities.

We've been able to establish collaborative contact with other organizations with the same passion for youth, young adults, incarcerated, formerly incarcerated adults. The contact has allowed AIZ2 to express the concern, and bridge the gap in the community by making our presence known at Town Hall meetings, and with local Church leaders.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
