Young Craftsmen and Young Craftswomen


These programs reach about 100 young offenders each year.  With the guidance of volunteer mentors, participating youths can improve their reading and math skills while building Adirondack chairs.  The chairs are then sold to provide restitution funds and funds to replenish supplies for more chairs.  Young Craftsmen/Craftswomen are learning both to cooperate with others and to take pride in their personal achievements.  While they build chairs they are also developing up skills that will be invaluable to them after they leave DJJ.
