Education Not Incarceration

Every year in the District of Columbia 8,500 student are truant, 5,200 are suspended, and 3,000 are arrested. Access Youth seeks to support and empower these youth by providing early intervention and prevention programming with our three restorative justice based programs. When a vulnerable youth sees that just one adult cares about them and is invested in their future, they are more likely to succeed.
