While I have been with the agency for a total of eight years, I have done two "tours". My first tour was working with our mentoring department and running an intensive mentoring and gang intervention program that worked with kids identified as most likely to kill or be killed. Once the funding ran out, I worked on another initiative that while was a good one didn't have the same impact. I left the agency for about six months. Then, I got THE CALL. One of the youth from our intensive mentoring program had been killed. I knew that I needed to return to CYC and do MORE. I'm home!
Hello Jonathan- I totally hear you about the character limits. We couldn't even fit our LinkedIn website :) It's neat to hear that you are world-wide! It sounds like you are making a huge impact! Keep up the great work!
