We would like to provide you with our philosophy and underlying business principles so you are better able to understand what motivates the services we provide and how we approach our work with you as a prospective consumer.
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.
