Our Business Philosophy
We believe that youth are our most
valuable resource, and as such we should invest in them with the most competent and capable caring adults, who have access
to the most effective and efficient programs and services. We believe that young people are capable of change,
and since they are (especially adolescents) in the most active growth period of human development (except for infancy), have
the ability to absorb a great deal of knowledge.
We therefore approach our work with corrections systems,
jurisdications, and others with a presumption that there are very few if any, bad or evil youth, but rather youth who
have made poor choices. We further believe that youth who are at risk are skill deficit, that is they have never
learned the appropriate pro-social skills to competently deal with stressful or problem situations. We also believe
that with prescriptive, developmental programming within a sound organizational structure, will enhance the likelihood that
youth at risk will change their thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and attitudes and become contributing, constructive, citizens
of their communities.
The Mission of G & G Consultants, LLC is to provide services to jurisdictions, juvenile and adult corrections
systems, and private, not for profit and for profit youth agencies who serve youth at risk--whether those youth are juvenile
delinquents, juvenile offenders, youthful offenders, behaviorally disordered, emotionally disturbed to name but a few.
G & G Consultants, LLC is a small, family owned business. Both principle
partners of the business have devoted their entire careers working with children and adolescents. The business
was incorporated after many years of consultation services to jurisdictions at the Federal, State, and Municipal level of
government in the areas of Organizational Development, Program Development, Staff Development, as well as product development.
G & G Consultants, LLC now does work throughout the United States, Canada and Europe, however maintains personal
services to meet specific agency needs.
