Arches offers a group mentoring intervention that draws on the strengths and assets of young people involved in the justice system. This program is available to 16 to 24 year olds who are currently on probation and are struggling with life aspects such as relationships, family, education, employment, goal setting, and making changes to habits, thoughts and behaviors.
The curriculum is designed to empower young people to transform the attitudes and behaviors that have led to harmful behavior and that present challenges to realizing productive goals. Its focus is on the achievement of developmental outcomes that prepare young people to succeed at education, work, and civic participation, and to develop and maintain positive relationships. Through Arches, Osborne and the Department of Probation aim to lower the rates of recidivism for young adults by five to ten percent.
The Osborne Association’s Arches program works with you to identify and reach your goals by pairing you with a committed mentor. Osborne’s mentors are passionate about motivating you and strengthening your leadership and life skills. In addition to a personal mentor, you’ll be connected to resources to enhance your education, employment, relationships or family, and leadership skills. You’ll also have the opportunity to earn up to $800 for completing the program!
