Our Programs


This is a partnership with the Montgomery Co. Juvenile Courts, Detention and Probation to provide positive relationships and opportunities, leadership, advocacy,workforce programs, internships and other supportive services to youth and young adults involved in the juvenile justice system or who are at risk of continued court involvement.

Through community partnerships with business leaders, organizations, and providers we work to reduce recidivism, provide healthy accountability, and create a safe space for young men and young ladies to explore, learn, develop and take a positive active role in creating their futures.  Our focus is within West Dayton, but no youth will be turned away from participating in this program, based on residency.

Our county’s continued growth, development and prosperity is dependent upon well-educated and engaged youth and young adults who are contributing financially, socially, and civically. Sunlight Village wants to help youth and young adults who are considered at-risk for failure be at-risk for SUCCESS.

Groups, Education, Training and Presentations:

Our team, community partners and area resources are working to restart our programs and groups within inner-city / West Dayton that will support families, parents, youth and children who are faced with mental, emotional and/or behavioral health concerns. We have a strong focus on helping our youth and young adults recover, heal and/or cope with mental health concerns such as trauma, grief and loss, anger management, isolation and more through appropriate groups that are led by professionals and/or peer groups. We also provide parent services that introduce and teach tools and skills needed to nurture parent and child bonding, as well as, educate parents/guardians on personal development, child & youth development, behaviors, learning, safety and community resources. We want to work with the family as a “whole” to decrease the incidence of school suspensions and/or expulsions, court involvement and/or recidivism due to mental, emotional and/or behavioral concerns while supporting positive parent engagement.
