Prison Prevention Ministries has been delivering services to inmates and at risk youth in Southeast Tennessee and Northwest Georgia for more than 4o years. We understand what is required to respond to the needs of youth who Prison Prevention Ministries (PPM) is committed to walk alongside teachers, parents, guardians and students to provide additional support to help all may be struggling emotionally, behaviorally, socially, or with academic achievement. youth reach their full life potential and become productive contributing members of society.

Adolescents often experience problems that are multifaceted and complex. With the pressures many youth face today along with a world where seemingly there are no longer moral absolutes, often youth and their parents or guardians experience a need for additional support both inside the school day and at the end of the school day. These are the hours that kids are often left at home after school with no healthy adult supervision setting a youth up to perhaps make self destructive decisions that lead to juvenile court intervention. The InZone program is not only active with its program participants in the school but also provides highly structured activities outside of school.
