Abstract
This project seeks to address the issue of violence among youth ages 13-18 in the South Bronx which has resulted in the Bronx having the largest group of youth who have been incarcerated. But what happens when these same youth return to their communities? The answer is that they sometimes feel a sense of hopelessness which results in more violence. Therefore, by creating an interactive community by which they can integrate back into the community we lessen the chance of future victimization and reduce the recidivism rate of our youth. The first phrase of this project addresses the environment in which these youth must contend with every day and what has been the major effect for our youth both as victim and perpetuator? The second phrase of this project seeks to hear from our youth and how they feel about the present state of youth in this generation. And finally this project seeks to create programming from a youth’s perspective that will allow our youth to reach their fullest potential both from within our structure and in partnership with outside agencies. As a pastor of Jesus Saves Back to Life Ministries, Inc. located in the midst of this violence and having grown up in this neighborhood I am compelled to create programming that will help our youth and their families.
