VETERANS EMPOWERING TEENS THROUGH SUPPORT® (V.E.T.T.S.®)
A Restorative Justice Mentoring Program
We were fortunate to have representative Robyn Porter of the 94th district who addressed the students about the importance of their right to vote; we also heard from her son Addison Joseph, who gave his testimony and details of his troubled times as an adolescent. He encouraged the youth not to make the same mistakes he committed earlier in his life.
A Special shout-out to the Teen Group of Jack and Jill of America, Inc and the Boy Scouts of America for sponsoring the 2015 Summit. It was invigorating to hear several youths state they wished the summit could be longer. At that point, we knew we had done our jobs. We learned so much about these youth, and we feel that we will be able to impact their lives in an even greater fashion in the upcoming years.
