Turnaround is the heart of the program at The ComeBack Kid Society. At risk middle school and high school students and mentors participate in a structured program of support and growth in small groups weekly inside the detention center. We have a variety of classes and programs from boot camps and yoga to job preparation, anger managment all the way to parenting classes. This is the gateway into the program for most of the youth where they can get a sense of who we are and what we have to offer for them after they get out of the juvi. The goal of us meeting with them inside is to offer a sense of hope and a resource for when they do finally leave the center. From our experience, if they are not paired with a mentor after they leave, we will see them back in 3 months, almost as if it is a rotating door.
