According to a recent study by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, 27 percent of delinquency cases in juvenile court involve defendants who are young women. Incarceration and involvement with law enforcement for these young women are frequently linked to a history of substance abuse, domestic violence, physical or sexual abuse, trauma, and time spent in foster care. The Love Foundation, in addition to its other social-service programs, promotes self-sufficiency and personal growth through mentorship, education, workforce development, and empowerment programs geared toward girls ages 16–21 in foster care, state-funded group homes, or the juvenile-justice system.
Young women who fall into one of these categories can attend The Love Foundation's Journey to My Better Self Empowerment Program, designed to equip them for a better future and improved career prospects through a college-readiness-and-workforce-development program. In four different sessions, workshops train participants in how to handle emotions positively while also imparting necessary skills for life and career development. At the end of the program, each girl who participates receives a college scholarship or an entry-level-job opportunity.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help The Love Foundation provide healthy lunches, including a salad, sandwich, fruit, and snack, at the first session of the Journey to My Better Self Empowerment Program. If G-Team members raise $750, then The Love Foundation can fund lunch for 50 young women attending the first session. All additional money raised will help fund the second session's lunch.
