Connecticut Junior Republic

The Connecticut Junior Republic (CJR) is a private non-profit organization dedicated to helping troubled youth become productive members of their communities.
CJR accomplishes its mission of service by providing residential and community-based care, treatment and education programs to help troubled boys and girls and their families.
Children today need help for problems that include emotional disturbance, damaged self-esteem, learning disabilities and the results of negative family and community environments.
State agencies serving children and families, the courts, local education agencies, and private referral sources turn to CJR for assistance in helping troubled youth.

Dear CJR, & it's past & present staff. I attended CJR in the mid-70s for approx 3 yrs. Without any doubt, it had a huge impact on me while I attended, as well years after. I would like to thank all the instructors & staff involved at the time of my schooling there. No question their professionalism & instructions helped mold who I am today. To that I am ever thankful. I was very troubled as a young male coming into my adolescence & they helped me face very personal demons at such a young age. I thank them for that with my heart, mind, body & soul! To anyone considers having one of their own attend, I would highly recommend it. CJR not only help me define who I am but also helped me to be the creative person I have become today, & I will never be able to thank or repay them for that. CJR I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being there when a very young male needed someone to believe in him, & when no one else would, you did. THANK YOU!!!

It was honestly the best educational place I ever attended in my child hood I could not have asked for better people to help me learn or to know ever I graduated in mid 2000 but still to this day use and benefit the from knowledge gained during my time there... At the time I didnt and wanted nothing more than to be home but today as a grown man appreciate the man I became and the year I spent there definitely had a major impact on who I am!
