Arternatives Programs also focus on teenagers who are in the process of transition from juvenile delinquency, negative peer pressures, crime and vagrancy.

Throughout the years, we have helped steer adolescents from negative street mentality and actions, towards accountable powerful perspectives, life objectives and educational pursuits. We have worked with kids from all of Los Angeles innercity sections, San Bernardino, Riverside, the high desert to the Bay areas. we have seen many incredible results from a personal, hands-on approach to youth rehabilitation, prevention and intervention programs.
