I work with youths at risk, children of the incarcerated, ex-offenders, adults and juveniles. I'm from Humboldt Park. I also worked for Ceasefire for about five years. I believe in social justice. And i am also a firm believer that culture can heal!!
What do you hope to learn, or share, on this forum?
What I'm hoping for is to network with other people and reach out to troubled youths. I am also a part of a program called the Neighborhood Recovery Initiative, NRI.
There are various components to this program, but we're working with the Reentry component. Which is geared to service individuals from the ages of 17 to 24 that\ are on Parole. we are in need of some participants and we hope to recruit some youths.
