The Extra Mile Club of the Lowcountry (EMC) provides youth skill building through mentoring, conflict resolution and community service. Our efforts have reduced juvenile delinquency and serious juvenile violence for the youth in the EMC. especially when coordinated with broader community wide efforts.
Through the EMC, youth are provided with mentors and positive adult role models that have proven to be an essential component of delinquency prevention.
A combination of meaningful activities, positive role models, consistent moral standards and viable educational opportunities has a prominent place in Beaufort County's crime control strategies.
