We serve over 400 youth per year
On average, 94% of our court-involved Participants are not reconvicted of a new crime within three years of enrollment in our program.
On average, AFJ spends $6,300 per person to keep our youth out of jail compared to the more than $500,000 the state/city will spend incarcerating that same individual.

One of the most successful and cost-effective methods for crime prevention.

Avenues for Justice's (AFJ) services are comprehensive and our staff is on call 24/7. Read about our successful model.
