Alive and Free


Alive & Free is a life-changing program that helps young people in the Bay Area and around the world.

Every young person has the potential to succeed. Sadly, violence – which spreads like a disease in our communities – locks up that potential and leaves young people incarcerated and, in many cases, dead.

Alive & Free is the prescription that puts an end to this violence. Young people who have learned the Alive & Free prescription have a new set of life skills to make choices that help them go to college, succeed in life, and give back to their communities.

Kids with special needs are welcome, on a case by case basis. Counselors will do their best to accommodate their needs, but may not be trained to manage the requirements of every child.
