Volunteers for Youth Justice Jumpstart

Description:

Jumpstart is a diversion program providing educational workshops in a support group setting with volunteer facilitators trained to address the needs of at-risk youth.

Staff and volunteers provide meaningful workshops which encourage the development of pro-social behavior and self-esteem, with workshop content continually evaluated for its effectiveness by staff, volunteers, and youth participants.

Jumpstart provides three primary workshops in Caddo and Bossier Parishes for diverted and adjudicated youth depending on the offense and particular needs of the child. These workshops include: Stamp Out Shoplifting (SOS), Violence Prevention (VP), and Power of Choice (POC).
