Reclaiming Futures

Reclaiming FuturesOverview

Reclaiming Futures is an organization that helps juveniles within the juvenile justice system get back on the right track. By providing mentorship, and varying means of community-based support, Wake Forest Students afford juveniles invaluable examples of community engagement, as well as insight, and encouragement as to how to transition out, and remain out of, the criminal justice system.

Training

The Big Brother coordinator completes individualized training with each mentor. Training takes roughly two hours.

Fall 2016 Interest Meeting: September 6th | 12 p.m. | Classroom 1101

Opportunities

Once matched, mentors are expected to meet with their “little” every week or two. Big Brother has many activities available for the mentor/little and often times gives away free tickets to sporting events.

Skills

Reclaiming Futures is great for those who enjoy working with children and adolescents, and/or are considering working in criminal defense, child advocacy, or other family related public interest fields. Also, there are at least 2 RF sponsored networking events per semester, where students will have the opportunity to meet and speak with Forsyth County Juvenile Judges and advocates.
