Take Charge of Your Future with Carey Guides Workshops
“Having the Good Fight Community Center in the La Crosse Community has offered a place for some of the most troubled youth to “hang out” and be a “kid” while also learning how to move on from mistakes and the possibility of making some adult life choices. This is all done with the supportive staff of the Good Fight Community Center. The agency provides a family type atmosphere where all are welcome and there is no room for discrimination just because of past mistakes.”
– Amy R.
Engage with relationship driven staff in a low stress, judgement free environment that allows teens who have made mistakes travel down a better path of future and continued success! These workshops will be guided by the utilization of Carey Guides Publishing resources.
Outcomes of the workshops will position our youth to stay out of the juvenile justice system and become apart of the reduction of recidivism in youth in the La Crosse area. While being proactive and utilizing the tools in our everyday work at the center will help to prevent delinquent behaviors that could land teens in trouble.
Classes will be held on Mondays. Starting Date: October 28, 2019.
About the Carey Guides
The Carey Guides, created by Carey Group Publishing, are designed to address the criminogenic needs of adult and juvenile offenders, help change behaviors, and reduce recidivism. According to Carey Group Publishing:
“Research demonstrates that traditional methods of supervision are ineffective in reducing recidivism among adult and juvenile offenders. For behavior change and recidivism reduction to be possible, offenders must understand the personal and environmental factors underlying their offending behavior and be taught the skills they need in order to make positive changes in the future. The Carey Guides are designed to equip corrections professionals with the information and tool they need to support these changes among their clients.”
