- Mentors – Mentoring is a 6-month commitment in which a volunteer works individually with a student for a minimum of four hours a month. Mentoring has been statistically shown to have a positive impact on recidivism and educational rates of students.
- Tutors – Tutors are assigned to an individual youth to focus on educational goals identified by the student’s teacher.
- Chaplaincy Services – Chaplaincy volunteers provide religious training and pastoral counseling to youth. Such services include Sunday chapel services, Monday night Bible study, and special chapel activities.
- Community Resource Council – The Community Resource Council assists in supplementing the rehabilitation services for youth by securing donations and facility activities and projects. The Ron Jackson council meets on the last Monday of even months at 12:00 p.m.
- Clothing Closet – Students are provided an opportunity to choose up to three outfits from the clothing closet upon their release. The closet is furnished solely by donations. Items needed for the closet include clothing, shoes, and hygiene items.
