Linking Youth to Natural Communities (LYNC)

CJR's Linking Youth to Natural Communities (LYNC) program provides services to court-involved boys, girls and their families to assist them in making sustainable behavioral changes that will reduce future court involvement.  Funded by the Judicial Branch Court Support Services Division (JBCSSD), the LYNC program is based on a three-phase system that is designed to identify needs, select relevant services, and focus on establishing community connections that will continue to provide ongoing support after program completion.  LYNC also prepares young people to enter the workforce through teaching soft employment skills, such as time management and interviewing techniques, and exploring volunteer and internship opportunities within their communities.  The average length of service is six months but may vary based on the individual needs of the youth and their families.
