  • AJ Girls Gone Green

    Adelante Jovencitas (AJ) is a program for girls ages 13 to 17 who are involved or are “at risk” of being involved in the juvenile justice system. Each week, we meet for an hour and half and work on projects and activities that focus on things such as self-esteem, service learning, team building, life skills and STEM.
