Straight Ahead Colorado trains Christian volunteers to lead weekly Bible Studies in juvenile detention centers, and some become mentors to these youth. These volunteers receive on-going training, support and materials. Volunteers have year-round opportunities to interact with these youth in a variety of other settings, such as Camping and through our Christmas For Every Child campaign.

No other nonprofit organization in Colorado does to the extent of what Straight Ahead Colorado does in reaching out to incarcerated teens, and following them in their transition back into their communities.
