The JUMP Program has helped me in many ways. It helped me go to school and get my GED. I haven't been partying or hanging out with a lot of people I used to. I've moved through the program pretty quickly and honestly. The therapy part has helped me a lot. My anger is no where near as bad or uncontrollable as it used to be.  The program gives second chances and shows you that there are people that work for the system that are really are here to help us do better.
