PROGRAM GOALS

Rebound’s Day program provides a supportive environment for young people to achieve the following goals:

  • Stay up-to-date with schoolwork during short-term suspension
  • Identify root causes of suspension, including student behavior and systemic issues
  • Address root causes of suspension in order to:
    • prevent juvenile crime (and other risky behaviors) during out of school time and
    • prevent future suspensions
  • Develop sources of resilience in youth by:
    • gaining self-knowledge and improving self-esteem
    • identifying personal strengths and goals
    • increasing skills in leadership, conflict management and effective communication skills
  • Promote social connectedness by reconnecting youth with families, school staff, and the larger community
