The work at JIFF involves the following goals:
- Reduce the recidivism (repeat offense) activity of all JIFF participants to below 35%.
65 – 85% of juvenile offenders reoffend within 3 years.
- Help each JIFF participant to develop a life plan with meaningful and measurable goals and begin to implement that life plan with guidance from JIFF Case Mentors.
- Link each JIFF graduate with a community mentor (Life Coach) who will continue to work with that youth once a week — for one year.
