As part of the Young Men’s Initiative, Friends was awarded a contract from the New York City Department of Probation to deliver ARCHES, a neighborhood-based mentoring program.  Using an evidence-based journaling curriculum, Friends is providing mentoring services for 40 young Harlem residents who are serving adult probation sentences each year. Program mentors provide additional one-on-one support to each participant to develop healthy relationships, improve decision-making, and work on education- and employment-related goals.
