Mission Statement

The Michael G. Santos Foundation (MGSF) is to work toward building and sustaining safer communities in measurable ways. To accomplish its mission, the organization works to educate at-risk populations, including troubled youth, the incarcerated, and those who've returned to society after release from prison.

Description

Through its Straight-A Guide program, MGSF helps participants from at-risk populations understand the importance of leading values-based, goal-oriented lives. It provides participants with effective strategies to develop both cognitive techniques and communication skills. Numerous, empirically tested studies show that such programs are effective at lowering proclivities for altercations with the criminal justice system while simultaneously preparing participants to lead contributing, law-abiding lives.
