Mission Statement


The Second Thoughts II... Beyond the Walls Inc. mission is to provide a setting that helps foster a positive and lasting transformation of adult and juvenile ex-offenders in their quest towards further rehabilitation and their successful integration within their respective communities.

Objective


Our objective is to assist the at-risk youth with their struggles towards conformity. We plan to teach them how to abandon their detrimental and destructive societal behaviors.

Goal 


The goal of Second Thoughts II... Beyond the Walls Inc. is to enhance the following areas in the lives we will assist: .

Organization


Second Thoughts II... Beyond the Walls Inc. is a Non-Profit Organization with the ultimate goal of encouraging positive change through self-examination and by challenging deeply rooted false notions of non-productive behavioral patterns of those who are at-risk of being incarcerated.


Vision

The Organization's main vision will be to serve as a follow-up and aftercare resource to youths and adults returning  to the community from lock up facilities.
 

Counseling and Mentoring

This aspect of the re-entry program will operate in conjunction with the communoty leaders by assisting at-risk youth in their neighborhood, their schools, community based programs, Department of Youth Services and Day Reporting Centers.

Opportunity


To provide jobs, education and guidance to ex-offenders recently leaving adult or juvenile facilities and re-entering society.
To provide an opportunity for ex-offenders to give back to their communities by offering their time, life experiences, and counseling services towards the at-risk youth in their community. We believe that the at-risk youth will benefit from the mentoring style of the offender's past lifestyles and consequences.

Prevention

To deter the ex-offender from returning to the penal system by providing them with meaningful and constructive activities in their community.

 


Choices!

You can always choose CHOICES but you cannot choose the CONSEQUENCES of your choices.

The thing about the CHOICES make is after we MADE THEM THEY turn around and MAKE US!

Make an Effort
Not an Excuse.


Life is all about making MISTAKES and LEARNING from them.

A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in or the kind of car I drove...



But the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child!
