Final end of year evaluation of our shelter in Jombang, Java, for youths released from children’s prison.
Much has happened since my last visit half a year ago. Computerskills, repairing cell phones and many other skills were learned. These pictures show one of our youth in his working corner repairing cell phones.

Once more we sat together in Surabaya and worked over the final financial statement for the sponsoring agency. Part of this was, to visit our vegetarian restaurant for lunch. Our team is represented there: Tiwi, Ayuni, Yusti, Ria and myself enjoying chinese vegetarian lunch.

Youth shelter Jombang

Our youth shelter in Jombang offered a seminar for the various authorities dealing with youths during and after release. I worked with the participants with what we call anger management. To asset them to become aware of their emotions, to learn to dis-identify and identify, learning to observe as well as transforming anger. It was a successful event, with participants leaving with tools to be used on their own.

Evaluation at Jombang youth shelter

Thie is one of the regular evaluations we hold in Jombang Java at our shelter for youths released from prison. We usually invoke the youths and other organizations which provide services to us to join us for meditation and discussions about current issues.

Part of the evaluation process is also to monitor our youths, which receive special skills training at the shelter. Some of them are already employed.
