The aim is to catch and divert youth in the early stages of life, before they become involved with drugs, gangs, and other unacceptable criminal behaviors. These lifestyle choices often lead to addiction, incarceration, or death.

This component operates inside Oklahoma’s penal institutions and county jails. The goal is to rehabilitate and prepare inmates for successful re-entry. We utilize our TASK copyrighted Department of Corrections Approved Behavior Transformation & Violence Control curriculum to train and prepare individuals to live a positive law-abiding lifestyle in society and while incarcerated. Our curriculum offers behavior transformation, violence control techniques, cognitive thinking, life skills, anger management techniques, healthy confliction resolution, and communication training.
