Each day, more and more young lives are being impacted by drugs, gangs, and violence around South Carolina. But it's not too late to make a difference. It will never be too late. Together, we can help the youth of our state transcend these challenges and discover hope! Together, we can change lives!
Friends of Juvenile Justice provides the youth of our communities with mentoring, job training, and afterschool programs. Supported by caring communities and concerned individuals, we give the youth of our state the resources they need to discover a brighter future. We are heavily involved both "behind the fence" at the Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) and "outside the fence" in our communities, to make sure every youth is positioned to find success.
The work we do is making a difference! We see it in the lives of the youth that we work with every day. Help us change lives and reclaim the futures of South Carolina youth! Find out how you can help by clicking one of the links above!
