dc.description.abstractProject H.E.A.L ( Healing through Empowerment Awareness and Leadership Development, is a project that is designed to increase the sustainability and reduce recidivism among Court –involved youth and youth who are at high risk of becoming involved in the criminal justice system. This project primarily target young African-American males between the ages of 13 to 24, within the city of Syracuse, NY. Currently these youth experience the highest unemployment rate in New York State, and experience high levels of poverty. African-American youth in this community are at a much higher risk of becoming incarcerated than white youth due to a lack of resources; such as family support services, educational and career development opportunities, and they lack the opportunity to participate in Alternative to Detention community based programming which is a cost effective method of reforming youth. This project was designed to create a network of resources within the community, targeting both traditional and non-traditional institutions that may offer valuable services to the youth and their families. The primary focus is to improve the unemployment rate among African-American youth, increase their academic achievements; develop youth into selfsufficient and sustainable individuals through employment, vocational and trade training and entrepreneurial training.
