Project Jericho is a visual and performing arts initiative that provides services to at-risk and court involved youth in Clark County, Ohio. They offer programing to both youth and their families. They have a special program offered inside the Clark County Juvenile Detention Center. The project uses art as a means of reflection and to foster positive social interaction and cooperation.
The two main project goals are to keep the students actively engaged and to introduce them to new hobbies that can help build connections with similar programs in the community. Ultimately they hope youth will remain involved with positive and supportive networks. They believe this model can decrease the rate of recidivism.
