RAISE THE AGE

image56

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. 

GANG DIVERSION

image57

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. 

REENTRY

image58

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. 

FATHERHOOD

image59

@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.

WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT

image60

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. 

LIFESKILLS

image61

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. 

Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports (PBIS)

image62

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.  

PARENT - TEACHER

image63

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. 

STAFF DEVELOPMENT

image64

PARENT - ONE TO ONE COACHING

image67

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?  -Click the pic to find out how. 

CHILD - ONE TO ONE COACHING

image68

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?  -Click the pic for more.

ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS

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?  -Click the pic for more. 

MIDDLE SCHOOLS

image71

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.  -Click the pic for more.  

HIGH SCHOOLS

image72

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.  

IN THE SPOTLIGHT

image73

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.  -Click the pic to see 'the challenge'.  

COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIPS

image74

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.  -Click the pic to see more.  


PROFESSIONAL GROWTH

image75

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!"   -Click the pic for more.  

GANG DIVERSION

image76

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.  

RAISE THE AGE

image77

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. 

FATHERHOOD

image78

@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.  

PROBATION | PAROLE & COURT REFERRALS

image79

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.   -Click the pic for more.

DETENTION CENTERS , CORRECTIONAL FACILITIES & PRISONS

image80

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. 

COMMUNITY ATONEMENT

image81

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. 

PRISON PRE-RELEASE SERVICES

image82

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. 

PRISON REENTRY - MEN

image83

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.  -Click the pic for more. 

PRISON REENTRY - WOMEN

image84

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.  -Click the pic for more.
