Impact Statement

Replay Outreach intervenes into the lives of teens that are beginning to show at-risk and delinquent behavior, thereby redirecting their focus towards a better future. By creating structure and purpose in their lives, they engage in better choices, improve their quality of life and become better members of the community.

ACCOMPLISHMENTS FROM THE PAST YEAR

§ Reached 66 at-risk teens through our newly developed job training and mentoring program, meeting the need for guidance and connection.

§ Provided 580 hours of instruction to job training students, increasing chances of employment.

§ Engaged community businesses to provide 570 hours of job shadowing to students; giving real world interaction, as well as opportunities for connections.  

§ Volunteers reached 894 youth in correctional facilities with the goal of encouraging life change and reducing repeat criminal behavior. 

GOALS FOR THE CURRENT YEAR

§ Increase Xceleration Job training participation by 25%, to reach more youth that are in need.

§ Require job training students to give back to the community, by completing a minimum of 5 volunteer hours, per job training session.

§ Research and implement new CRM software to increase organizational efficiency.

 


Needs Statement

(1)   Student Job Training Funding: Replay offers free job training to teens, which addresses needs that are unmet by other areas in their lives. Sustaining the program requires approximately $240,000 funding annually. Presently, Replay receives approximately $100,000/year in In-Kind donations, however, this is unpredictable from year to year. Cost: Average per session/student $1,200.

 

(2)   Transportation Vehicle: The first step of success in the job training program is to ensure that students have transportation to our facility. Currently, we have a 2007, 15 seat passenger van; however, it will need to be replaced, in the near future. Cost: New 12-15 seat passenger van $32,000.

 

      (3)   Family Assistance Fund: Students that we provide services to are usually from disadvantaged families and oftentimes, lack basic             means. As job training students move forward to seeking employment, they need assistance to be job ready. Cost: Total annual             assistance distributed, on an as needed basis $2,000 (Approximately $30/Student).   

 

 

Background Statement

In the spring of 2011, Replay began as an outreach to teens in the Manatee Regional Detention Center, with the message that they are worthy and can turn their life around. At that facility, we reach delinquent teens from Sarasota, Manatee, and DeSoto counties. Our mission has grown to additional facilities including Palmetto Youth Academy, Paxen Learning Corporation, Project Bridges, and the Manatee County Jail.

 

After our program was established inside the detention facilities, we responded to a further need, by creating a mentoring program. With increased community support, we began working with the Juvenile Probation Office and started fulfilling the need for mentors. Providing positive role-models to the teens, continues to be integral to positive change. Presently, Manatee County 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, 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 ultimately, opening a group transitional home for youth that are committed to a fresh start.

Operational Plan:

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

Ø Bring awareness of the needs of these youth to the community and demonstrate how proper intervention can benefit the youth thereby breaking the cycle for repeat juvenile offenders.

Ø Provide job training to at-risk youth with an awareness of their gifts, talents, and personality.

Ø Ultimately, 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 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 to be taught values that most schools and agencies don’t teach. Countless numbers of youth sift through these places and programs, only to continue 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. These qualities are what make a difference 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?

In 2012, we launched our job training program to help youth build vocational skills, as well as, life and coping skills. We want to help them break free from trouble and find direction in their lives. This incorporates mentors, to help keep the kids focused in positive direction and give great feedback, love, and support. Since beginning this program, we have had 3 students earn Student of the Month from their schools and many youths 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 obtain a fresh start on life. This home will have a highly structured, goal-oriented approach, centered on determination, academic and physical discipline, enhancing leadership development, and focused on spiritual discipleship.

 

 

 

 

Statement from the CEO/Executive Director


Programs
Description

 One of the key components of our outreach is how intentional we are at helping at-risk 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 an after-school job, but simply can’t find employment. In our program we address the following core developmental factors:

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

· “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.

Short Term Success
  1. Provide youth the opportunity to understand themselves through personality assessments.
  2. Enhance the youths' 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, interviewing skills, job application process, 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 helping them rise up from their failures.

 

Long Term Success

The goal is to empower at-risk teens and enable them 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 Xceleration Job 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 are 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. This 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.
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.

It is organizations like yours with dedicated, hardworking, caring volunteers who really make a difference in a child’s life…Replay is to be commended for their outstanding contributions to the community.” - Frank Gargett, Chief of Administrative Services FDJJ

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. 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

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)

· 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 1,793 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

The state Department of Juvenile Justice is looking for fresh ideas. Our approach is being applauded by them and others.  We have received distinguished awards for our work and recognition as a Hometown Hero and Everyday Hero. We diligently search 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.
