Beyond the Headlines

Show topic: At-Risk Youth - Crime

July 25, 2010
At-Risk Youth - Crime
Hosted by ABC7's Cheryl Jennings

This week's "Beyond the Headlines" looks at at-risk youth and preventing crime. We highlight ways in which we can all get involved in our communities to make our neighborhoods a safer, crime-free place.

We also consider the benefits of getting youth involved in community programs as a means of rehabilitation, rather than relying on youth incarceration. Successful Bay Area programs, like "The Phoenix Project of Marin" and "Old Skool Café," reach out to at-risk youth and provide them with opportunities and a place to belong.

Studio Guests:

Barry Krisberg
Berkeley Center for Criminal Justice

Felicia Gaston
Creator and Director, The Phoenix Project of Marin

Dan Nackerman
Executive Director, County of Marin Housing Authority

Teresa Goines
Founder, Oldskool Cafe
