Our Mission & Vision
Freedom 4 Youth has a successful history of empowering “at-promise” youth inside and out of the juvenile justice system and building community through transformative education, self-realization & wellness programs, mentorship, and policy advocacy.
Our vision is to expand existing partnerships with Santa Barbara County Probation, UCSB, the Workforce Development Board and the community at-large to build a prevention, diversion and re-entry center.
WE EMPOWER CHILDREN AND BUILD COMMUNITY THROUGH
Shifting the personal and social narrative about youth in the juvenile justice system through transformative programs such as our annual Freedom 4 Youth Leadership Conference and our In Unity We Rise event at LPBC & UCSB.
Hands-on interactive peer-to-peer mentoring workshops designed to empower youth through building their written and oral communication skill sets, along with their emotional competencies, while developing their personal wellness, career, and academic goals.
Collaborating across lines with youth, families, Universities, Community Colleges, government agencies and community-based organizations to implement innovative solutions for the complete wellness of our youth and our communities.
