About us

Everglades Youth Rehab-Development Centers (3 Centers )

- just south of Florida City, Florida
"at the tip of the peninsula"
- operates programs under the auspices
of the Florida Dept.of Juvenile
Justice
- moderate risk and high risk Youth
- 13 - 17 year old males
- put in our care from "court
decisions" in Florida Keys,
greater Miami, Ft Lauderdale,
Palm Beach, Orlando, Tampa ....
- "tossed away" kids from the bottom of
the totem pole who have grown up
surrounded by all those negative
pull-downs of our current
society ... poverty, truancy,
dysfunctional families,
neighborhood peer pressures,
bounced from school to school,
easy-access to drugs, etc etc
- our Youth are in our Programs
from 6 to 24 months ...
- they follow GED courses in the
morning ... literacy level low
few read or write at their age-
level ...
- it's the frontlines

You couldn't find a more rewarding or
worthwhile venture than to become one of our "Volunteers" and help turn around one of these Youth's outlook on life. We are looking for College students, post-College, business people, community minded people
who can join our Youth "chat sessions" to help open these kids eyes to some of the good things out there in life ... to help improve their literacy skills, to help them realize that there are people who care about their future... people who can bring into these Youth Group chat-sessions practical and
"put them on the right path" advice and guidance ....

Location :
