Youth (7-17)

Through transformative experiences, we focus on leadership development, essential life skills, and fostering a supportive environment for growth.

Young Adults (18-24)

For young adults aged 18 to 24, we offer the KBFLC’s Empowerment Program. This program is designed to assist young adults in achieving academic and employment success as they transition into adulthood. We provide guidance and support to help them navigate the challenges of this crucial stage in life, empowering them to build a foundation for a bright future.”

New Beginnings (7-17)

Our New Beginnings program offers a specialized diversion program for individuals aged 7 to 17 in the early stages of involvement in the juvenile justice or corrections systems. We provide tailored support and intervention strategies to divert these individuals from further participation in the justice system, offering them a chance for a fresh start and a new beginning.

Through personalized mentoring, educational opportunities, and targeted interventions, we aim to address the underlying issues and challenges that may have led to their involvement in the justice system. We aim to empower them to make positive choices, develop essential life skills, and successfully reintegrate into their communities as responsible and productive members.
