The Credible Messenger Program works to reduce court system recidivism and gang violence among youth through peer leader outreach and restorative justice strategies. Its mentor-led programming works with youth and their families to provide a range of services to advocate for and support youth in the justice system, and to prevent recidivism and transition towards educational achievement, strengthened families, and job access. Credible Messenger offers emotional and mental health programs, job training, financial literacy and guidance, life skills, family support, and educational mentoring. Many mentors previously had been in the juvenile justice system and were inspired by the Credible Messenger program to return to support Sasha Bruce youth.
