A mission of the JJC, a pre-trial detention facility for youth between the ages of 10 and 21, is to provide a secure, educationally conducive environment.
The vision of the JJC Book Club is to use literature to awaken and inspire the young people to their full potential and to give them the tools to pursue education and follow a positive new life path. It is hoped that the book club will help engage young minds with the gift of current literature. The club meets once a week and is facilitated by a volunteer and a JJC teacher.
