In 2017, Just(ice) In Time© programs had attendance rates of 454 young people, parents, staff and community partners and 79 law enforcement.  Participants learned the potential impact, risk and liability associated with certain behavior and situations and how to apply and model effective behavior to influence positive change within their communities. All will learn and develop agreed upon, workable violence prevention solutions for implementation, to keep people and communities safer.  “It is imperative community leaders like Boys & Girls Clubs and the police are seen as partners working towards developing, through dialog and a nonthreatening platform, agreed upon real community solutions for implementation as well as maintaining the focus and momentum the Just(ice) In Time© Training has created” stated Isaac Snell, Jr. President of Snell & Associates Consultants.
