Our Community-Based Mentoring and Educational (CBME) program is designed to reach our youth early in their lives in order to prevent later involvement in the juvenile justice system.
We provide financial assistance on an emergency basis for support in emergency situations.
KBFLC’s Empowerment Program is designed for young adults who are 18-24 years of age. Assistance is offered to help them achieve academic and employment success.
Our diversion program is designed for those who are 11-17 years old and who are in the early stages of involvement in the juvenile justice or corrections systems.
Educational support through homework help/tutoring, life skills and study skills training; summer employment opportunities, paid and unpaid work experience including internship and job shadowing when funds are available; occupational skills training, leadership development opportunities, supportive services; adult mentoring; follow-up services for at least twelve months; and comprehensive guidance, counseling, and referrals as appropriate.
We offer a variety of services for youth and young adults to get them back on track like tutoring/homework help in a specific course, writing skills for any assignments, study habit strategies, time management allocation, and conquering test anxieties. We offer individual and group tutoring, experienced tutors, and weekly workshops. For many students, middle, high and college is a whole new world when it comes to studying and rigor. But that doesn’t mean they have to struggle. We are here to help!
We partner with parents, schools, community-based organizations and businesses to strengthen protective factors that help teens and young adults avoid high-risk behavior, safeguard their futures, and become their best possible selves. Our peer mentoring program empowers teens and young adults to make positive life choices with a future focus.
We support young adults 18-24 to promote educational success, job readiness, positive behaviors and healthy life choices, and develop strong leadership skills.
