Mission Statement

Project Avary's mission is to cultivate a community of support for children whose parents are imprisoned or otherwise involved with the criminal justice system.

Avary targets the neglected population of pre-adolescent children who have not yet entered the cycles of violence and incarceration, and we work with them through young adulthood. Year-round programming gives the children ongoing opportunities to work and play cooperatively within a consistent community of peers and adults; to learn how to manage anger and resolve conflict; and to discover and develop unique personal strengths. Avary offers structure, a network of positive relationships, and experiences that promote the resiliency children need

Description

Project Avary consists of three integrated main components: Camp Avary, Avary Adventure Days - monthly field trips during the school year - and Avary's Mentoring Program. Supplementing those are Leadership Retreats for the older youth, a Family Camp weekend, and twice-yearly celebrations for the whole Avary community.
