Are you feeling like RTA is a hot potato that fell into your lap? Politics won't allow you to openly admit that the challenges can be overwhelming. Guess what, you're not alone. Guess what, we can help.
To us, young adults that have chosen gang life made that choice from a space of trauma, correlated to social determinants. We specialize in designing programs that help young gang members understand that there is a better life.
A reentry program designed by GRAAFICS is one that incorporates those moral and ethical practices that deliver formerly incarcerated men and women celebrating 10+ years of freedom. It's respected. It's appreciated. It's different.
@GRAAFICS, the blueprint for an effective fatherhood program begins long before any of our guys have contact with their child. I guess one can say its a dad's right of passage. Once completed, then it's father-son | father-daughter time.
We know that finding career employment opportunities for the GRAAFICS population is tough. When we design your workforce program, using our 5 point development system, we guarantee an experience your clients will love.
Designing your life skills program means identifying those timeless qualities, encapsulating them into curriculum form, then delivering a program with the ability to measure in 10 years. We can do that for you.
PBIS is a model that schools use to help encourage good student behavior. With PBIS, schools teach, support and empower good student behavior, just as they would about other subjects like reading or math. PBIS is prevention focused as opposed to responsive or disciplinary.
When a child's teacher and parent(s) are on the same page, the likelihood that the child will be successful significantly increases. Allow us to build your PTA and you'll be amazed at both the parent-teacher dynamic as well as student overall improvement.

ONE-TO-ONE WITH A PARENT MEANS CHANGING A PERSPECTIVE ... @ GRAAFICS, we understand their situation. We see it through the exact same lens that they see it through because we use to BE them. One to one parent coaching means going the extra mile when they may have given up hope. Are you a parent that's interested in one to one coaching for yourself or your child's other parent?
ONE-TO-ONE WITH A CHILD MEANS IT'S PERSONAL ... @ GRAAFICS, we accept them as they are, have their best interest at heart and will do everything in our power so that they don't make the same mistakes we did. Need one-to-one coaching for your child?
WORKING WITH A FAMILY MEANS BREAKING A PATTERN ... @ GRAAFICS, we understand the core reasons why today's family unit is broken. When working with a family, our evidence based, holistic approach is grounded in the interest of the child or children. We then empower both parents to
GROUND ZERO FOR BULLYING IS HERE! ... What do you do when teachers, administrators and parents witness your work in the middle and high schools that older children attend, and request that aggressive behaviors be addressed at an earlier age?
MIDDLE SCHOOL MADNESS ... Information absorbed and processed during the middle school years are vital to a child's future. Today; with uncontrolled social determinants, social-emotional pressures and the growing demand to do more, sometimes result in children giving up and loosing their way. GRAAFICS was tried by fire in some of the toughest middle schools around the country.
NOBODY DOES ANYTHING FOR ME. I DO EVERYTHING FOR MYSELF. SO, WHAT CAN ANYONE TELL ME? ... New York | New Jersey | Mississippi | Georgia | Ohio. Have a 'real-talk' conversation with most urban high schoolers, and they will invite you into a world filled with unbelievable situations.
SEE IT HERE. THE OPEN CHALLENGE TO THE GOVERNOR OF NY STATE AND THE MAYOR OF NYC ... Whether we're on the news or in newspapers; in magazines, blogs or social media. @GRAAFICS we realize that we are the voice of 'our' constituents and that advocating to the public on their behalf is our responsibility.
VOICES IN HARLEM DIVERSIFIED ... Over the past 25 years we've seen Harlem go from a community that was historically African American to one that is now inclusive of many different cultures, skin tones and languages. As unstoppable changes were and are made, it was important that we had a seat at the table to insure that our voices were heard.
TEACHING PEOPLE HOW TO DO SOMETHING IS EASY. Teaching people how to be effective at what you've taught them is genius. @GRAAFICS, our genius is engagement. Talk to any of the private companies or governmental agencies that have contracted us, they will probably say: "Those guys are amazing at what they do!"
The GRAAFICS Model for youth gang diversion is unique approach enrollments, memberships and activity. With 17yrs developing the evidence, we understand the quagmire of 'the life' and know how to get our clients from where they are to where we know they can be.
GRAAFICS was one of the first leaders in the 10+ year fight to raise New York States age of criminal responsibility to 18. Now that legislation has passed, we offer contracted internal and external RTA services to agencies interested in addressing their most complex RTA client and staff needs.
@GRAAFICS, our approach to absentee fathering is one that offers highly effective training and strategies for fathers to reconnect, repair and rebuild healthy relationships with both child(ren) and co-parent.
NY COURTS & COMMUNITY SUPERVISION
@ GRAAFICS ... Our partnership with NY Courts and NY Community Supervision allows us two things: #1. A seat at the table with a voice on how decisions are made and #2. A position on the defensive line, doing all that we can to help the formerly incarcerated and new offenders stay OUT of prison.
AS A CONTRACTED GOVERNMENT VENDOR IN SEVERAL STATES ... @ GRAAFICS, our partnerships within adult and juvenile justice facilities throughout the nation allows us to use our evidence based approach to rehabilitation via: Educational Workshops, Life Skills Trainings and Extra Curricular Activities.
GIVING BACK WORKS ... @GRAAFICS, our works in the community allow us to do a few things: #1. Show the community that those same people that helped to destroy the neighborhood is now helping to rebuild it, #2. Plant the seed for change in the way that our participants think about future criminal activity.
BREAKING THE CYCLE OF RECIDIVISM STARTS FROM WITHIN ... @GRAAFICS, within means within the prison and within the person. Nothing insures a person's return to prison more than outdated pre-release services facilitated by someone out-of-touch with the returning citizen's social determinants.
THE ACTION PLAN FOR THE RETURNING MAN BEGINS AS HE IS EXPERIENCING HIS LAST HOUR AS AN INMATE ... @GRAAFICS, the evidence shows that if an inmate is not ready to put his action plan into effect the second that he steps out of whatever vehicle brought him home, he may be on the countdown to his return.
THE ACTION PLAN FOR THE RETURNING WOMAN IS A LOT DIFFERENT FROM A MAN'S ... 75% of women that return to society from incarceration are mothers. This means that while mom may not be able to assume full parental responsibilities, she is always thinking of her babies. @GRAAFICS, the action plan for the returning woman includes steps towards re-connection.
