Inside The Chicago Program That Is Slashing Youth Crime Rates

A Progressive's thoughts

One of my favorite sections of the Huffington Post is the section “What’s Working”, this Chicago based Becoming a Man program is a hopeful example of what is working and could be working for more communities. I have gravitated to the What’s Working section because I felt myself getting too easily depressed by the usual headlines of things not working, if I am getting turned off by the constant negativity, I can only imagine what the young people must be feeling especially in places like Chicago, thank goodness for the bravery and determination of activists and community organizers who see an issue and don’t wait for others to act, they respond themselves and get results. It should be up to us to mimic their good works and apply those results elsewhere where they are needed. Pay it forward is a noble concept and would work wonderfully in this instance.
