the program

This is the "main event." The Brave Effect kicks off with The Reentry Guide, followed by personalized coaching and a training program to prepare them for life on the outside. Joe makes monthly visits to the local jail to help kickstart this program from the inside.


Prison prevention

Founder Joe Jenkins, who spent 13 years in prison, speaks to classes and groups in local schools from elementary age and up. He discusses the concepts of decision making and positioning oneself to do more than survive.

 Referral Partners

We believe in the notion that we are "better together." Therefore we provide folks with a plethora of referral services to help them with re-entry. These include job referrals, vouchers for clothes, financial planning, mentorship and more.


Consultation (Non-Legal)

We help incarcerated individuals cope with the impact their charges and possible sentence will have on their lives. We can help review case details and plans for the future.
