Redirection Outdoor Program Experience (R.O.P.E.) provides juvenile offenders an alternative to formal court proceedings and offers a chance for these and other youth to accept responsibility and move forward in their lives. Through structured activities, this program aims to reduce the recidivism rate among offending youth and provide a positive activity for other at-risk youth. R.O.P.E. is for non-violent 11- to 17 year-old boys and girls. During the mandatory portion of the program, youth attend four meetings per month and are required to perform 4 hrs. of community service. A typical group has 15 to 20 youth who participate together throughout program, after which they have the option of continuing their participation as a leader. The groups are exposed to 12 workshops that rotate every 12 weeks. The speakers are professional speakers, people in the community that are reformed criminals and victims of crimes. We partner with many area non-profits to facilitate our workshops.
