GENaustin’s 180 Program reaches many girls after a first offense and helps them get back on track, preventing them from entering or re-entering the juvenile justice system. Each of the 8-week group sessions includes a curriculum that focuses on developing girls’ bonding, goal-setting skills, self-esteem, mental health, attachment to school, violence prevention, issues with authority and substance abuse prevention.
But so many girls cannot afford the program fee - and it’s just $80 for 8 weeks! Please make a donation to help ONE or MORE girls. Your scholarship donation could turn a girl’s life around.
“I KNOW I changed because of this program. I remember feeling so angry and then after talking with the other girls in 180, I would leave the meeting with absolutely no anger. I took the class several months ago and to this day I carry with me valuable things that I learned in the 180 program.” - (GENgirl-180 Program)
Girls are the fastest growing population in the juvenile justice system today. Research shows that programs which intervene after the first or second offense are the most effective at preventing future high-risk behaviors.
