Our circle represents a circle of life and its equality. We are all born and we all die. Da’Cipher 360° also stands for the complete knowledge and wisdom for life that is shared through those relationships formed in the circle, “where there is no judgin’, just lovin’!’ At Da’Cipher 360°, we seek “to decipher” the essence of life’s experiences. We explore, evaluate, analyze and investigate other’s stories with scripture, film, art, poetry and oral presentations. Our aim is to inspire critical thinking on the part of our youth and facilitate the forging of new and lasting friendship bonds with the larger community.Mission Statement: Da’Cipher 360° Youth Peer Support Ministries is a group Mentor Organization that is designed to both prevent the incarceration of our youth and reinvent those incarcerated.{{more}}Five Promises for Youth: 1) We promise to be present in your life. 2) We promise to listen, even when that is hard to do. 3) We promise to give our time and talents. 4) We promise to share honestly from our hearts. 5) We promise to love you, without judging you.Our Focus: To be the Friends and Mentors of the Youth.
