Here’s an interesting read:
“Luna, 34, credits the complete turnaround in his life, even his survival, to a city of Seattle initiative that provided adult mentors, jobs and recreation to young gang members.” Seems like it was a pretty effective group.
Apparently this is part of a series and they want feedback, experiences and ideas for future stories on the local youth violence. I figured some of you might push them into a good subject.
One thing is for certain, as the times get tougher, so will the kids around here trying to get by without the support of their families and communities. We need to not only figure out how to help, but how to inspire the right help. One program is mentioned here, but keep discussing!
