Programs for Youth

Mentoring Inside Out (MIO)

MIO is a comprehensive program that gives children ages 7-14 of justice-involved parents support to stay in school and to become healthy, successful adults. The program works with the whole family. It includes individual mentoring, group activities, transportation for youth to prison for visits with parents, and parenting classes and support groups for parents and caregivers.

Family Engagement Activities

The Center provides free family engagement events throughout the year that enhance family connectedness, create community, and reinforce healthy parenting skills. Events include outdoor gatherings in the park, trips to local attractions such as the zoo or art museum, sports game outings, seasonal holiday parties, movies, and on-site activities at our Center. During the pandemic, we have continued to offer socially distant events in-person events and virtual gatherings.
