Remand Centers for Delinquent Youth

_thumbnail_IMG_1761.jpg Teenagers, usually ranging from 13 to 18 years old, and sometimes younger, can be found in the five major remand centers of the country. At an age when they are most vulnerable, and when most of their peers are working toward a bright and prosperous future, these youths find themselves imprisoned for anywhere from a few months to over five years. Dejected, discouraged, hardened, and hopeless, they are in desperate need of direction and purpose. Friendship, kindness, and personal input given through our many activities help them find closure and redirect their focus to trying to build a future with hope and purpose.
