3 Reasons to Become a Community Coach


You Make a Real Difference in Your Community

Over 95% of YRP program participants have not reoffended. That is 600% below the average rate of recidivism for inmates returning to Yavapai County.


You Have A Positive Impact on a Person’s Life


“The Yavapai Reentry Project was out there to help [reentering individuals] and get us back into the community. Knowing that that was out there was a relief.”

“The Yavapai Reentry Project offered me a sense of direction and gave me a feeling of purpose. It gave my family a sense of serenity to know that there was an organization willing to help me even though I had—well because I had a history in prison!”


You Help Shape the Lives of Children

Children who have a parent who has been imprisoned have a better than 50% chance of going to prison themselves.
