Thursday's Thoughts

"Nonprofit Spotlight: Young Visionaries Youth Leadership Academy"

Young Visionaries was created by two men, previously in gangs, who provide youth with services such as employment assistance, mentoring, tutoring and encouraging gang youth to continue their education through their Corners for College program. This academy understands the complex issues youth face that they even have on-site mental health and substance abuse counselors. It is great to know there are other organizations addressing the needs of youth and understand their potential in this world. We need more people who have overcome their difficulties and have the desire to give youth guidance, especially in these hard times where many services are disappearing.
