Second Chance Transition

Second Chance Transition


Target audience: Young Adults transitioning from incarceration back into their communities

# of Participants:  20 - 25

Duration: 3 days, 2 hours per day


Our Second Chance Transition program will begin with our Bridging Possibilities workshop, we refer to these activities as “shaking up the snow globe” of feelings, often allowing emotions to resettle in a different perspective and assist participants in being more open.

Bridging Possibilities Workshop – a New Vision

The New Vision workshop which focuses specifically on utilizing the needs and wants of the individual participant. These activities work specifically on assisting them with stepping back and seeing the big picture of their actions. They also begin to step back and find the minuet positivity within negative situations allowing them to begin to see things in a different perspective

Day 1: 
Participants will create a storyboard of their life story.

  • Using a large accordion folded piece of paper participants will draw the story of their lives in three parts, the past, present and future. 

Day 2:
Participants will then write about the drawing.

  • Homework Assignment: Participants will draw and journal about their day again focusing on something good, which will continue after the workshop, is completed.

Day 3:
Participants will then review their life story focusing on something good.

  • Daily journaling can continue until workshop follow up.

While participants complete their daily assignment they will not be aware of what will be taking place next in the assignment.
