The path between a troubled life that leads to crime – or a productive career that leads to a fulfilled life – involves breaking the cycle… a cycle that often begins with our Juvenile Detention Center becoming a revolving door to the State Prison.

Under leadership from the Pima County School Superintendent’s Office – with support from Potoff Private Philanthropy – the Pima Cycle Breaker (PCB) Program empowers lifelong success among youth and young adults by offering educational pathways, skills-based training, apprenticeships, jobs placements and needs-driven wraparound services (including housing, transportation, food and tuition).


PCB is always looking for good mentors and businesses to work with. We need business partners that would consider hiring for apprenticeships, internships, and job placements. Join our list of partners that already include Tucson Asphalt, Excel Mechanical, DPR Construction, Barker Contracting, Burns McDowell, UPS, Flores Concepts, Goodwill Metro, Pima Area Labor Federation, and Southwest Regional Carpenter’s Council.
