Formerly known as Juvenile Anger Management (JAM), JEM, or Juvenile Emotional Management, is specifically designed to teach at-risk and underserved youth how to recognize anger and express it appropriately, therefore eliminating a root cause of youth violence. Our program has formed and expanded a significant new referral partnership with the Long Beach Unified School District, which enables us to reach more youths exhibiting at-risk behaviors before they are cited for breaking the law. A total of three 8-week JEM programs are conducted annually. Each weekly session is two hours long. The last thirty minutes of each session is yoga training, which provides hands-on relaxation to end the evening and teaches youth how to incorporate their own mindfulness practice at home. Concurrent (optional) weekly sessions for parents are held while youths are in their program sessions.
