Our Mission & Vision

Freedom 4 Youth has a successful history of empowering “at-promise” youth in 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.
