Crossfire is intent on setting up a mentoring program for gang members and at-risk youths. We are beginning by partnering with a new program at the Cook County Juvenile Detention Center (CCJDC) called Gate Keepers. This program addresses the needs of young men (approximately 15-16 years old who have made commitments to Christ while incarcerated in the CCJDC. Gate Keeprs will connect these youths at risk with mentors from their neighborhoods upon release from the CCJDC. The mentoring aspect of the program is done through the All for One mentoring Service. Links for both Gate Keepers and All for One mentoring can be found below:
