Alternative Youth

Mission: To break the chain of teens in need by empowering them through tailored cognitive and relationship education intensive programs.

Assisting those unable to remain within traditional high school settings due to probation or criminal arrests, our workshops and collateral take advantage of proven cognitive applications and the consciousness hierarchy to realign the thought process and behavior. Tailored to match audience circumstance, relationship education is relied upon heavily to forge acceptance and guidance without judgment.

Action: Though no one program is a cure-all for every circumstance, 2CUs 360 degree extensive program takes advantage of the following best-practice methods to gain positive results:

Cognitive Behavioral Intervention
The Looking Glass Self Theory
Relationship Education
Consciousness Hierarchy
Consequential Cognitive Theory
Affirmation, Visualization, and Goal-Setting

In January of 2013, 2CU, Christian HELP, and The Central Florida Jobs Initiative launched an intensive program to educate, employ, and empower the disenfranchised. This 6 class curriculum is unique in the approach it takes to equip participants to become excellent employers by focusing on changing the attitudes, habits, and behaviors keeping them from being successful.

Endorsed by the United Way, Wal-Mart Foundation, Wells Fargo, Back of America, and JP Morgan Chase, UCF, and Workforce Central Florida, the program features volunteers from many companies including Manpower and Frontier Communications.

Result: What began in 2012 for a local non-profit organization, 2CUs  program has grown to three locations and is set to expand due to the ease of replication, affordability,  and bottom-line results. With a two-year graduate gainful employment over 70%, our turn-key and multi-platform programs are suited for individual as well as workshop environments, inside or outside prison or jail walls.
