The mission of Project Re-Direct is to significantly improve academic and social skills development; lower the incidence of juvenile delinquency, child abuse and domestic violence. Our Vision is to ‘Save the lives of children and Re-Direct them towards healthier lifestyles; while developing productive men and women who will pursue a better quality of life.”
Project Re-Direct’s new initiative is to provide S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology Engineering and Math) education along with a rigorous academic and social skills curriculum in line with the Core Curriculum Standards of New Jersey for pre-k – 8th grade urban students. They are prepared for higher education that will lead to careers in math, science, engineering and technological based careers.
What makes Project Re-Direct/Youth & Family Services unique is our ability to engage and educate students during ‘non-traditional’ hours which are Saturdays and during the summer months. We supplement the public and charter schools with accelerated academic, social skills development and recreation; while providing S.T.E.M. education at such an early age We also provide supportive services to families and children. This Holistic design is unique to traditional service delivery
Project Re-Direct/Youth & Family Services Inc., believes that a more appropriate response to juvenile delinquency and crime in the urban communities is not the building of more prisons and juvenile halls, but academic, economic development, job opportunities for teens and adults is pivotal in this vital fight against poverty and desperation that leads to crime.
We have created a Holistic and comprehensive proactive education system that provides services to prevent the abuse and neglect of children within the family structure. The founder and staff of Project Re-Direct know that all children should be valued and we work collaboratively to ensure that they become successful and productive men and women.
Our Vision is to ‘Save the lives of children and Re-Direct them towards healthier lifestyles; while developing productive men and women who will pursue a better quality of life.”
