About Strong Arms of JXN
In Strong Arms of JXN, formerly incarcerated adults use what they’ve learned to help youth avoid making the same mistakes. The program itself has two main objectives: 1) keep young people from dropping out of school; and 2) keep young people away from negative interactions with law enforcement. Both scenarios are precursors to later criminal activity, research indicates.
Strong Arms of JXN’s Co-director Benny Ivey and adult mentor John Knight share pasts scarred by drug and gang activity. After exiting prison, Knight got his life back on track and grew determined to dissuade young people from following in his earlier destructive footsteps.
