New Earth has been offering its programming in youth probation facilities and group homes facilities since 2004. With a highly specialized curriculum of arts programming, mentorship and gardening, youth are first exposed to our work in lock-up or placement. This is the first step in the transformation process. Our highly trained instructors work with youth directly throughout the duration of their stay. 45 days prior to release, New Earth enters the MDT process with the youth to ensure their successful transition to the “outs”. Once the young person is released is when the real work beings. Students enter the New Earth Arts & Leadership Center, enroll in New Earth Youthbuild and/or the Explore Vocational Training program and begin the journey of becoming unstoppable. New Earth Transforms future leaders.
