Impact Statement

We step into the lives of teens that are beginning to show at-risk and delinquent behavior, Many at-risk youth find themselves without structure and purpose for their lives. We believe in helping them find direction, a passion, and purpose for their lives.

In 2014, we developed a mentorship program for youth. Working with the schools, courts, and department of juvenile justice system, we assign mentors to help youth who have been identified as having a need for a mentor to make a difference in their lives.

In 2016, after identifying many youth lack the opportunities for obtaining jobs, we began providing job training and mentoring. Working within the schools, probation office, and courts, we teach at-risk teens job skills, training, encouragement and placement into the workforce. This includes topics such as: anger management, communication, interview skills, networking, service mindset, and marketing.

We reach over 1000 youth annually by providing messages of hope and transformation for youth. We are known for our involvement in juvenile detention and longer-term secure residential treatment programs. Many of these youth have made a commitment to change the course of their lives.

Background Statement

Replay began as an outreach to kids in Manatee Regional Detention Center in the spring of 2011, with the desire to help at-risk youth turn their trouble into triumph. There we made impact on delinquent teens from Sarasota, Manatee, and DeSoto counties. We have grown beyond this by adding additional programs at the Palmetto Youth Academy, Paxen, Project Bridges, and Manatee County Jail.

Once the team was established to go into the facilities, we moved quickly to building a mentoring program. With increased community support, we began working with the juvenile probation office, responding to the need for mentors and providing positive role-models for these teens. Manatee School District and Project Bridges of Eckerd are utilizing our assistance in this endeavor.

At the end of 2012, Replay Outreach, Inc. was incorporated and quickly granted the status of non-profit company, under the organizational leadership of our Board of Directors and Advisory Council. In 2016 we began a unique job training program for developing entrepreneurs and taking troubled youth off the streets. Our future goals include: building awareness within the community of the needs for at-risk teens, providing additional types of training, certifications, and placement services, and opening a group transitional home for youth committed to make a new start.

Operational Plan:

Ø We will create a model program in the Manatee/Sarasota area for at-risk and troubled kids: which truly engages, inspires, and transforms destructive life patterns and the lives of others in their sphere of influence.

Ø We will bring awareness of the needs of these youth to the community, and how proper intervention can benefit the youth, breaking the cycle for repeat juvenile offenders.

Ø We will provide at-risk youth job training, with an awareness of their gifts, talents, and personality.

Ø We will provide a safe transitional home for youth who are trying to make good choices, but their home environments are an obstacle to their success. This will be a place youth can live, upon their release from secure juvenile detention, where love and discipline are intertwined.

Ø We will develop a manual of strategies and standard operating procedures that can be duplicated in additional facilities with the same effectiveness.

Statement from the Board Chair/Board President

 

At-risk teens need values that most schools and agencies don’t teach. Countless numbers of youth sift through these places and programs, only to continue on the same paths that lead to corruption. Understanding the needs of the at-risk youth is the key. We have found success building an outreach which understands the mind-set of these youth. Paul Tough, who studied many successful school districts, wrote in How Children Learn, that children need “grit, curiosity, and the hidden power of character.” At Replay, we call those qualities – determination, development, and discipline. This is the difference-maker in working with at-risk teens, and foundational to whatever we do as we inspire youth.

Replay Outreach began to help troubled teens transform their lives and break free of downward cycles that lead to crime and poverty. We reach kids where they are and offer them hope.

I have seen youth who go back to their homes, with a chance to start anew, only to be brought back down by offers for drugs, weapons, and crime. How do we break kids out of this cycle?

One young girl at a facility wrote a note to us, saying, “I want my life upside down.” As we began to work with her outside the facility, we began to see the struggle that she had to endure when she went back home - a mother who had been strung out on cocaine, going from one relationship to another, with a house full of siblings ranging in years from newborn to 20’s. Her words echoed as we realized she was on her own to accomplish this. If not us, then who will stand in the gap that has been left wide open?

This past year we launched our job training program to help youth build vocational skills, as well as, life & coping skills to help them break free from trouble and find direction for their lives. This incorporates mentors, to help keep the kids focused in positive direction and give great feedback, love, and support. Since beginning that we have had 3 Student of the Months from their schools and many youth acquiring jobs.

Our next vision is to open a group home for these troubled youth – Xtreme D, which will demand more volunteers, time and money beyond what we can do alone. We need the community to rally behind this effort and support us. Our home will be a place where at-risk teens can get a new start for a new life. This home will have a highly structured goal oriented approach; centered on determination, academic and physical discipline, enhancing leadership development, and focused spiritual discipleship.

Financial support is needed for us to expand this work. Start-up costs must come from those who recognize the need and are willing to help financially.

Programs
Description

Initially, through our frontline teams, we begin meeting with troubled teens that are identified through: schools, detention, residential facilities, juvenile probation, and after-school programs. By offering highly trained captivating speakers and likable volunteers who can quickly build rapport with at-risk youth, we are able to catch the attention of these kids. Frontline Team goes into the facilities and begins building connections with the youth. Youth encounter caring adults who speak to their specific needs and issues. Volunteers who are gifted motivate youth to change. During this phase, we hope to call attention to the need for change and how to become overcomers, transforming their future.

Program Success Examples

“I wanna just thank you for coming today cuz truthfully I was feeling at my lowest, but after hearing you tell us about wanting something better was making me realize that I can do better and to want more for myself. I just ask that you ask God to help me stay strong.” - KB -youth 

“I love you all! Bayside (Replay) you changed me forever.” - CM  youth 

During my time in numerous facilities, I have seen many groups come into the facility to present material to the children. In all of these years, I have never seen a group as dedicated and consistent as REPLAY. Each week for the past two years, I have watched Larry deliver a powerful, inspirational and content driven message to our children. Larry sees leadership potential in these children, and with such a vision, he empowers the children to see themselves as potential leaders in a positive way, rather than in the negative light most people see them" - Robert LeVine, JD, CEO Empowerment Publications

Description

Outside the facilities, our coaches/mentors begin to improve the lives of at-risk teens by spending one-on-one time with them.  These kids are eager for love, acceptance, and a positive role model to continue the transformation that they have experienced. Research continues to show that those with a positive role-model in their life do much better when encountering life’s obstacles. We try to match up these mentors with the kids based on interests and hobbies. The coach/mentor is encouraged to spend no less than one hour each week with their youth: encouraging them, assisting with homework to improve grades, building stronger sense of self-worth, and helping improve their relationships with parents. Awards/Rewards will help kids stay engaged and motivate teens to succeed. These may include –mini business internships, special trips, certificates, special privileges, etc.

Description

Many at-risk teens come from homes or neighborhoods where the family structures are fractured. Their friendships are often misguided, which causes them to get caught up in destructive patterns. An alternative to going home will be our group home where love and discipleship are intertwined. This will be a place of transformation for juvenile offenders under a highly structured goal oriented approach; centered on determination, academic and physical discipline, enhancing leadership development, and focused spiritual discipleship. A safe, clean home-like environment will help the teens build new life. We will provide career counselling, job training, education, and tutoring to help the teens focus on achieving their goals.

“REPLAY is filling a critical need in our community in reaching out to those kids who so desperately need a guiding hand and a caring heart. The REPLAY involvement reinforces the importance of these kids as individuals and serves to overall strengthen our community.” - Karen Windon, Deputy County Administrator, Manatee County Government

“Since Replay has been involved with Palmetto Youth Academy, the youth have a renewed spirit. The volunteers with Replay are so open and accepting while letting them know that they all have a purpose in life. The volunteers of Replay have shown such support to those that have no support system and continue to offer services whenever and wherever needed, not just to the youth but to the staff as well. The youth at Palmetto Youth Academy are fortunate to have Replay as a resource of support.” - Norma Wynn, Facility Administrator, Palmetto Youth Academy

Description

 

One of the key components of our outreach is how intentional we are at helping these teens make their transformation. Through a high impact job training curriculum, we help youth become job ready. Kids without a focus like sports, music, etc. wander aimlessly without a direction for their future. Many would love to find that in an after-school job, but simply can’t find employment. Core developmental keys that will be addressed include:

· Career Readiness Skills –basic job skills that instil self-confidence, teamwork, and plans for continued self-improvement (Direction/Development)

· “The Determination Factor” (Passion) – building the disciplines of the mind (education/vocation), body (physical), soul (emotional expression), and spirit (spiritual expression)

· Unleashing Success (Purpose) – youth uncover who they are (temperament), and how their inborn personality traits can either direct or misdirect their future

  1. Provide youth the opportunity to understand themselves through personality assessments.
  2. Enhance the youth’s employability by helping youth implement goal-setting, self-discipline, problem solving, time management, and social and emotional skills. We will also teach job readiness skills, such as: resume and cover letter writing, interview skills, job application, business connections, and marketing oneself.
  3. Allow youth the opportunity to spend time within a business; learning the various departments and more in-depth on how that business runs and the various talents/abilities needed within the company.
  4.  Provide mentors who will help the youth take the lessons and integrate them into their life, their academics, and their employment search; celebrating their successes and help them rise up their failures.

 

Long Term Success

The goal is to empower at-risk teens to redirect their behavior toward a positive future by gaining personal insight and the job readiness skills needed to be successful in the workplace. They will find their passion when they understand their likes, abilities and uniqueness within their given temperaments. Once they understand themselves, they can unleash that by passionately seeking and pursuing their future success. This will drive them toward a purpose for life that is worthy of modifying their own behavior.

The Job Xceleration program is designed to encourage at-risk teens to uncover their purpose in life, learn to manage their behavior, and gain the skills needed to be successful in the workplace. The teens will be referred from juvenile probation officers, alternative schools, and Teen Court.

Empowering youth with a direction, passion, and purpose is a strategic move in breaking them free.

Program Success Monitoring

The Youth Experiences Survey 2.0 (YES) will be adapted and used to identify strengths and weaknesses in the program instruction and delivery. It will allow us to see if the student feels progress was made. It will also help us assess whether the student feels he is ready to move forward into the job shadow. If there are areas, where a high number of students didn’t progress, we will look at the training that was given to determine if there were problems with the curriculum, instructor, venue.

Employability Scorecard is a tool that we developed tol help us track the progress of the youth within the job shadow experience. Discussions with the mentor, the business, and the student will be made if there come to be areas of concern.

“The Youth Experiences Survey (YES) was designed to examine high school adolescents’ developmental experiences in extracurricular activities and community-based programs. It has been used in several research studies and results from these studies have been published in social science journals. The YES includes 19 scales that assess self-reported, positive developmental experiences in the activity across six domains. These are in addition five scales that ask about negative experiences that may interfere with development. The instrument was designed and tested for use with multi ethnic youth and for use across the full range of structured youth programs and activities. Available for free on line.”

Program Success Examples 82% of youth will demonstrate vocational readiness through their participation and completion of the job shadow opportunity. Readiness will be evidenced by their Employability Scorecard.

Program Comments by Organization

We are building a model that will reach the kid that tends toward destructive patterns. Many other groups go after the average teenager as their model. Our model is strictly focused on the troubled teen, so that we can turn youth corruption and violence around and produce more productive citizens from those who would typically drop out or begin a lifetime of crime.

· 66,934 Florida youth were referred to Department of Juvenile Justice (FDJJ, 2010-11)

· 2.2 million juvenile inmates nationwide at an annual cost of about $35,000 per youth (OJJDP, 2006)

· 544,185 cases reported of Parental Neglect nationally (FY 2010)

· 8,419 Florida youth served time in residential facilities (FDJJ, 2011)

· Nearly 60% of incarcerated youth who re-offend, do so within 4 months of release (FDJJ, 2012)

· Bradenton’s violent crime rate is 29% higher than Florida (238% higher than the national average)

· Florida has the largest growing number of gangs, over the last 25 years

· 73% of adult inmates were formerly in a juvenile detention facility (OJJDP, 2005)

Manatee Regional Detention Center (short-term detention facility) last year served 1793 youth for an average stay of 10 days. Annual cost for running this facility is over $3.5 million:

=$95,890 each year/ youth Success Rate – (not available) FDJJ, 2011-2012

Palmetto Youth Academy (a residential programs within Manatee) serves 48 youth for an average of 333 days. Annual cost for running this facility is over $2.5 million:

=$48,000 each year/ youth Success Rate = 54% (recidivism rate of 46%) FDJJ, 2011-2012

Replay Xtreme D Group Home will be a 12 bed facility for 365 days annually. Annual cost is $162,000

=$13,500 each year/ youth Success Rate = 83% (recidivism projections -17%) Missouri Model*

The state Department of Juvenile Justice is looking for fresh ideas. Our county is diligently searching for low cost solutions to the problem of destructive juvenile behavior. The Annie E. Casey Foundation is at the forefront of juvenile justice reform grounded in research-based methods that are proven. The success that the Missouri Model has seen is due to their efforts in understanding and treating incarcerated youth differently than adults.

Replay Outreach is a research-based model that has demonstrated impact. We are positioning ourselves as a model that can be duplicated, so that more kids’ lives will find peace and prosperity, rather than crime and ongoing incarceration.

As a newer non-profit company, we will definitely have growth challenges as structural changes are made to fill out our employment models. We do, however, have experienced board members who are aware of these challenges and ready and able to respond. We also have a thoroughly designed 5 year strategic plan of action with a good skeleton organizational chart which is already being implemented.

Replay Outreach did not file a 990 for 2012, since we were not registered yet as a non-profit company.  We did not have income, nor expenses for 2012 and filled out an IRS Form 1120. 
2013 we filed the postcard, so no formal 990 needed.
We have been advised by our accountant that it wasn't cost effective to pay for an audit, since we are still relatively small nonprofit.
