A BAG WITH SWAG
LEARN ABOUT THE IMPACT OUR SWAG BAG IS MAKING IN THE LIVES OF AT-RISK YOUTH
Our mission at Showcase Group is to strengthen families and communities through psychological and personal development.
Showcase Group provides support to incarcerated youth and their families by implementing psychosocial services such as advocacy and therapy by trained professionals. Our social and emotional growth programs also support this population in making better choices as a result of gaining a higher level of emotional intelligence (EI) for adult healthy living.
Paired with advocacy, each participant experiences programming that is culturally relevant, easily accessible, and addresses the issues of mental health, residential care, education, and employment pathways - ultimately resulting in the reduction of recidivism for incarcerated youth.
Showcase Group is dedicated to improving the lives of system-involved youth and their families through innovative and evidence-based interventions. Founded in 2012, Showcase Group is administered mostly by volunteers and led by Founder and Executive Director, John Kennebrew, a Psychotherapist with a focus on Families and Adolescents. With first-hand experience as a foster parent and mental health professional serving incarcerated youth, Kennebrew launched Showcase Group to bring Social and Emotional Intelligence based workshops to Residential Childcare Facilities and Juvenile Detention Centers throughout the state of Georgia.
Showcase Group aims to highlight the positive attributes youth can contribute to society while working towards the psychological and behavioral growth of youth and their families intermittently. The Showcase Group Advocacy Initiative is about keeping us connected to our youth and helping them understand that they are not alone. Showcase Group participants gear their mindsets toward positive change through innovative therapeutic interventions. This has contributed greatly to the growth of the organization.
