Juvenile crime in the United States has reached epidemic proportions. Nearly three million crimes arecommitted each year by kids under the age of 18, and when a teenager is jailed just once, their odds of reoffending are 75%.
AMIkids Gadsden takes a long-term, sustainable approach to assist our community’s youth to discover their potential and obtain the tools to succeed. Studies have shown that diverting one high-risk teenager from a life of crime could potentially save society $2.6 to $5.3 million, breaking the cycle of crime.
