BRIDGING THE GAP
We are creating a movement that empowers & inspires capable citizens to live life to the fullest by giving back to their community as mentors and volunteers in the Juvenile Justice System in every county in the state of Florida.
In other words, The Verb Kind is giving people a chance to experience something amazing, like hanging out with kids who are currently locked up or at-risk.
VERB was inspired by a small group of people who hung out with the kids in the JDC in Orlando, FL every Monday night, doing activities, planning fun-simple nights, making cookies, picnics, brought in special guests etc..
The impact on these children's behavior and hope they ended up having because of the weekly visits was heard in Tallahassee.
We are now on a venture to duplicate what we did in Orlando, all across the state of Florida.
CONSISTANCY & COMPASSION
To create an OPPORTUNITY to serve.
To empower our volunteers through training & coaching to effectively mentor at-risk youth, both inside and outside of the JDC.
To express the needs & find solutions for our Juveniles in the Juvenile Detention Centers.
To advocate for the staff for all DJJ centers and meet the needs of the center locally.
To share the simplicity of how ONE caring adult can change the trajectory of a kids life.
MAKING A REAL DIFFERENCE
The impact TIME makes on our children and the staff at each location is incredible. The way our volunteers feel every week as they walk out of the JDC is unexplainable.
We have seen first hand what our consistency & time does to anothers life -- it gives HOPE. And THAT is our VICTORY.
