The Miami Dade Bootcamp Program is in serious danger. Sources say that this wonderful program which is an alternative to young offenders both male and female will be coming to a halt effectively April 2,2010.
For those who are not aware of this program, this program is a prison alternative to youth and young adult offenders with serious criminal charges to change the wrongs that they have commited in the past.
This program is a 16 month program contructed of three phases. Phase I is the military phase to where they are taught proper protocol and respect for not only themselves but also their family and elders. Phase II is a work release program where they are taught proper working habits, alternatives to better interviewing and resume construction and of course landing the job that fits their qualifications. Phase III is the final step to where these young people are now put to work with all the intial training they have learned and apply them to their daily lives.
This program has been opened from 1995 and it is the 3rd top Bootcamp facility in the nation not to mention the endless amounts of success stories that has came out of this prolific program. This is the only hope Floridian young offenders truly have inorder to make a difference and a change in their lives and it's important for the public to know what a wonderful asset this program truly does for their community.
