Young Men's Reentry Program
WHAT WE DO
The Young Men's Reentry Program is a full-service reentry program for 18-25 year old previously incarcerated men located at the San Francisco Sherriff's Department Community Programs (70 Oak Grove Street). We provide a range of services to promote the self-sufficiency needed for transition into adulthood. Young men develop the tools and resources to lead healthy and productive lives, and reduce their rates of re-arrest and re-incarceration. YMRP combines the best practices of restorative justice, youth development, and a strength based approach that emphasizes safety, healthy relationships, skill building, empowerment, accountability and healing.
Case Management: The case manager helps clients develop and implement individual service plans addressing short- and long-term goals around employment, housing, education, counseling and substance abuse.
Job Development: All YRMP clients have access to CW's job development resources at 70 Oak Grove.
Expressive Arts: The Restorative Justice Expressive Arts class offers clients the opportunity, through creative writing and spoken word, to examine themselves and look at the full impact of their actions on their victim, their family and the community. Through public performances, the young men are provided an opportunity to reconnect, repair the harm, and begin to heal.
