The Long Beach Bar Foundation raises funds to do its work in the greater Long Beach community through:
At LBBF, we believe that we can help youth stop short of crime. We believe in providing youth with the path to positive change through legal education, crime prevention and crime diversion. In 2005 the SHORTSTOP Program helped 472 at risk youth stop short of crime and turn towards productive citizenship. Changes in law enforcement policy, school policy and community climate have created the "zero tolerance" philosophy towards juvenile crime and delinquency in many communities. Young people who make a poor decision and break the law are no longer given a warning and sent home, juvenile prosecution for minor offenses is on the rise, and more and more youth are being tried as adults and sent to adult prison.According to the Office of Juvenile Justice and Prevention, minority youth ages 10-17 are at greater risk of involvement in harmful risk behavior due to cultural, language, intergenerational barriers, zero tolerance policies at schools, and other triggers which eventually lead to involvement in the juvenile justice system and ultimately imprisonment.
Your tax-deductible donation will help the Long Beach Bar Foundation strengthen the youth of the greater Long Beach community through juvenile crime prevention and diversion, legal education, scholarships and other charitable program. Your gift would mean a great deal to us and to the young people with whom we work.
