Jump Right Association, Inc.
Jump Right is an organization designed to bring about positive change in challenged families by providing preventative services to at-risk youth and re-entry services and resources for those who have had to serve time in the penal system. We aim to support our mission by acting on our motto: "Restoring our Future by Breaking the Cycle". We are eager to identify synergies with other organizations that have the common goal of changing the futures of our youth by breaking the negative cycles that may currently affect their families. Critical issues for address are single parent and latch-key homes, low self-esteem among the students, high entrance rate into the juvenile punishment system and elevated school dropout rates. These are only to name a few. All too often a negative light is placed on our youth and ex-convicts that it seems as if our communities are headed towards self-destruction. Our program is aimed at taking a stance and redirecting the focus of negativity and helping make a difference.
