At Malon’s Project, Inc, our approach to disrupting the school-to-prison pipeline and creating positive change is deeply rooted in the promotion of eight essential positive attributes: honesty, humility, gratitude, open-mindedness, compassion, responsibility, objectivity, and willingness. These attributes serve as guiding principles in all our endeavors, shaping our interactions, and driving our commitment to creating a more just and equitable society for our youth.
Honesty: We prioritize honesty in all our interactions, fostering an environment of trust and integrity. By encouraging open and transparent communication, we empower youth to express themselves authentically and embrace truthfulness in their actions and decisions.
Humility: At Malon’s Project, Inc, we believe in the power of humility. Recognizing that we all have room for growth and learning, we approach our work with humility, valuing the diverse perspectives and experiences that each individual brings to the table.
Gratitude: Gratitude is at the core of our philosophy. We are deeply thankful for the trust placed in us by the youth, schools, community organizations, and probation departments we collaborate with. By expressing gratitude, we cultivate a positive and supportive atmosphere that encourages reciprocity and genuine appreciation for one another.
Open-Mindedness: We embrace open-mindedness as a key attribute in our approach to problem-solving and decision-making. We encourage youth to explore diverse perspectives, challenge assumptions, and remain receptive to new ideas, fostering an inclusive and dynamic environment where creativity and innovation thrive.

Compassion: Compassion lies at the heart of our work. We approach youth and their experiences with empathy, understanding, and kindness. By recognizing the challenges they may face, we aim to create a nurturing space where they feel supported and valued.
Responsibility: Taking responsibility for our actions and their impact is central to our commitment to creating positive change. We encourage youth to take ownership of their choices, empowering them to make informed decisions and contribute positively to their communities.
Objectivity: We value objectivity in our work, striving to remain impartial and unbiased in our approach. By emphasizing objectivity, we provide a fair and equitable platform for youth to reflect, learn, and grow.
Willingness: Our belief in the power of willingness drives us forward. We are dedicated to adapting and evolving our strategies, embracing new ideas, and continuously seeking opportunities for improvement. With a willingness to learn and innovate, we can better serve the needs of our youth and communities.
Incorporating these eight positive attributes into our mission and programs enhances our ability to empower young individuals and promote restorative, trauma-informed, and peer-driven solutions. At Malon’s Project, Inc, we are committed to fostering inner transformation, motivation, inspiration, nutrition, and dedication among our youth, creating a brighter and more hopeful future for all.
At Malon’s Project, Inc, we are committed to making a lasting impact on disrupting the school-to-prison pipeline by advocating for innovative and transformative approaches to school discipline and juvenile justice systems. Our mission is to create a positive shift towards restorative, trauma-informed, and peer-driven solutions that prioritize understanding, growth, and healing for young individuals.
We firmly believe that traditional punitive approaches in schools and juvenile justice systems often perpetuate a cycle of negativity, leaving youth feeling marginalized and disconnected from their communities. To break this cycle, we envision a future where youth are given the opportunity to learn from their mistakes, reflect on their actions, and take responsibility for repairing any harm caused. By emphasizing restorative practices, we aim to foster a sense of accountability and understanding among young individuals, empowering them to make amends and embrace personal growth.
At the core of our approach is a commitment to trauma-informed practices. We recognize that many young people involved in the justice system have experienced trauma and adverse childhood experiences. Therefore, we strive to create an environment that is sensitive to their needs, providing support and understanding to help them heal and thrive.
Central to our philosophy is the active involvement of youth themselves. We believe that young individuals should be key stakeholders in shaping their own pathways to success. By incorporating their voices, perspectives, and experiences into decision-making processes, we can empower them to exercise authentic agency in their lives and communities. We aim to create an inclusive space where youth feel heard, valued, and respected.
To achieve our goals, we work collaboratively with schools, community organizations, and probation departments. Through these partnerships, we foster an integrated and comprehensive network of support. We understand that addressing the school-to-prison pipeline requires a multi-faceted approach that involves various stakeholders committed to the well-being and success of young individuals.
Our vision extends beyond reducing incarceration and recidivism rates; it encompasses building safer communities where youth are encouraged to stay in school and develop a deeper sense of personal connection and safety. By cultivating a supportive and nurturing environment, we aspire to inspire positive change that extends beyond the individual and into the fabric of neighborhoods.
At Malon’s Project, Inc, we are passionate about creating a future where young individuals can overcome challenges, embrace their potential, and contribute positively to society. We are committed to fostering transformation, growth, and healing through restorative, trauma-informed, and peer-driven solutions, making a difference in the lives of countless young individuals and their communities. Our work is rooted in originality, authenticity, and a firm dedication to creating a brighter future for all.
