About Prevention Education

Skill-building programs help change life trajectories

Our programs thread together prevention  curricula, workforce training, and technology skill-building to provide a unique youth education program. We focus on four components that equip participants with the tools they need to change their life trajectories.

  • Youth Advocacy
  • Prevention Educations
  • Workforce Development (FutureNet)
  • Video Production Education (Media Matters)

Partnerships provide a new range of opportunities

Organizations like juvenile correction facilities, alternative schools, the Job Corps, and others partner with JFS to provide our programs to their groups.
