About this program

Breaking the cycle and restoring our community

building a new future

This impact program is recognized by the Sacramento District Attorney’s Office as an alternative to incarceration. Adult participants attend education and training sessions twice weekly and Healing Circles once weekly. Youth participants are provided with ongoing mentorship. We create healthy learning spaces and engage them in educational field trips and outdoor activities to improve educational engagement that will result in diploma achievement, pathways to college, or sustainable vocational careers by lowering barriers of adversity that undermine learning. We are creating a new culture of mental health wellness, self-efficacy, and socio-emotional intelligence.
