Established March 2003 and now exists as the only organization in Memphis specifically serving juvenile offenders in an effort to break the repetitive cycle of crime and offer hope for a productive future.
Our Vision – To see youth flourish, free from a life of crime
Our Mission – To break the destructive cycle of juvenile crime, through Christ centered intervention.
The JIFF program objectives are to:
Offer genuine alternatives (to repeat criminal activity) to youth who have been involved with the juvenile justice system.
Promote academic success (growth) among youth whose families are or have been involved with the juvenile justice system.
Encourage and positively influence the families of youth involved with the juvenile justice system.
JIFF provides youth from the juvenile justice system with the skills, support and direction necessary to break the destructive cycle of criminal behavior. We are a 501c3 program dedicated to seeing youth flourish, free from a life of crime. By influencing the thinking, behavior and direction of young offenders (age 12-18) and their families, we can help them pursue productive and pro-social activities.
