Reimagining the Power of Sport in Juvenile Justice

Project FLEX leverages the power of sport to unite individuals and develop a culture of opportunity for incarcerated youth.

The Problem

In the state of Illinois, 93% of youth return to prison within 5 years of their original sentence. We believe juvenile facilities are not equipped to provide holistic programming that creates pathways out of the prison pipeline.

Our Solution

Flex implements evidence-based programming focused on youth physical/mental health, character development, career exploration, and higher education access. Flex's ultimate goal is to reduce recidivism and set youth up for success post-incarceration.
