The Survival Skills for Young Women program mission is to educate young girls and teens that they can be smart, strong, and independent.
The program was started to combat the disproportionate number of teen girls entering into the juvenile justice system by actively going for the roots causes of delinquency. The idea was that while there were many avenues available to help male teens there were few available to teenage girls. With The Survival Skills program the juvenile justice has designed a program that speaks to the needs of teen girls.
