MAGIC

MAGIC provides mentors to young women detained in the local juvenile detention center who await sentencing or admission into a treatment program. MAGIC is the only comprehensive project of its kind for incarcerated young women in the state of Florida. Through twice monthly programming, JLGO volunteers nurture the self-esteem of MAGIC participants by providing support, encouragement, and educational services. Sessions cover enriching topics such as women’s health, bullying, self-esteem, mental health, career options, domestic violence, nutrition, and human trafficking. This program is conducted in partnership with the Orange Regional Juvenile Detention Center and the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice who employ a qualified professional staff experienced in working with adolescent girls. During the 2018/2019 League year, the MAGIC program served more than 160 youth and coordinated donations of more than $500 in healthy food for the youth detained at the Orange Regional Juvenile Detention Center.
