If current trends continue, one in four black males born today can expect to spend time in prison. This is an outrage. This is the destruction of a generation. ...We must invest in jobs and education, not jails and incarceration. We must end private prisons and detention centers in the U.S. The time is long overdue for real criminal justice reform.

We applaud these young men as they start their journeys into the workforce!
“You are capable of more than you know. Choose a goal that seems right for you and strive to be the best, however hard the path. Aim high. Behave honorably. Prepare to be alone at times, and to endure failure. Persist! The world needs all you can give.” E.O. Wilson
“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” Harriet Tubman.
Whether it’s our diligent participants, hard-working volunteers, or considerate donors – it’s important to remember the dream of overcoming setbacks to make community and social contributions.
Last night we were thrilled to welcome back to our Professional Development Series Program, former participant Coss Marte. Coss, who launched his very successful fitness company, Coss Athletics, came back to teach a workshop to current participants on starting your own business.
The packed class was eager to hear the steps Coss took in building his company from scratch but perhaps the most inspiring part of the class was seeing how successful Coss has become in such a short time after leaving prison. Our participants were inspired and energized and many felt, for the first time, the possibility that they too could be successful.
