ARM- Elevation: Cognitive Employment for Teenagers
ARM Program offers court ordered and prevention programs.
We have been partnered with courts since 1999, helping defendants in the criminal justice system accept responsibility and arm themselves with better alternatives through our programs.
We are dedicated to achieving our goals by employing proven strategies to change offenders’ values and beliefs, build their competency skills and hold them accountable. The result is reduced recidivism, improved public safety and enhanced quality of life for those in our communities. We strive to be an integral partner of a model justice system.
We envision: Offenders taking responsibility for their behavior, enhancing their skills and leading lawful lives. Our communities benefiting from a reduced recidivism rate and confidently investing in the criminal justice process.
Our organization is also expanding our juvenile and youth prevention eLearning programs and services in schools throughout Michigan.
This course is written in a story format and focuses on interpersonal and job seeking skills that can be used for a lifetime. Most high school students and teenagers have the physical skills to become successful at work, but are often deficient in the cognitive skills that must come first. If students never elevate their thinking, they can never elevate their behavior. This course is delivered in 4 units, and take approximately 4 to 6 hours to complete.
