JUVENILE PROGRAM

The Boys Lead Juvenile Justice Program is an interactive and innovative curriculum for juvenile offenders between the ages of 10 to 18. It explores the stories of 13 Nobel Peace Laureates and the strategies they used to overcome problems in their lives and their communities. Through this age-appropriate curriculum, boys will explore their own identities and reexamine the choices they make including their role models and the peer groups to which they belong. Boys also develop leadership and problem-solving skills while engaging in service projects that are aligned with the vision of the foundation.
