Richard Boyd Fellowship - APPLY NOW!


Safe Return Project cares about our young people affected by criminalization. We understand how powerful, transformative, and impactful it is when others decide to invest in and care about the youth in their communities.

When you become a mentor, you help shape our youth into the next generation of advocates. Join us in our vision to reinvest in our young and grow leaders who solve problems by bringing their lived experiences as an asset to the issues they take on tomorrow.

Credible Messenger Mentors are trained to help support and inspire the next generation and provide them with the tools to effectively speak their truth to power, impact change, and help end mass incarceration.
