Grassroots in My City

In my city, there have been organizations that are geared towards young people it involves adults in the community that are positive role models and even people who may have been involved in the street life, but have been able to grow from that which allows them to be an example and lead the young people in positivity to help their future. They have been organized by having a program with locations across the city in order to reach youth of all parts. Problems that these programs face is losing kids as they get older to street life and violence. Mostly it is street life, in regards to selling drugs, because many young people want money and these programs don’t give money. However, one of the major programs in the city, has opened up job opportunities for the youth who get to old for the program, by making them counselors which can offer money through the summer and school year. Also, it offers a job opportunity from early teens to college.
