In my teens, I worked as an aide in my community supervising and mentoring youth in various programs and delivering lunches to needy students.
I'm a pretty active person. I love yoga, crossfit, Zumba, and got to get that occasional hike in at Runyon Canyon when I can. I also love mentoring youth.
I think it's important for us as a society to remember that the youth within juvenile justice systems are, most of the time, youths who simply haven't had the right mentors and supporters around them - because of circumstances beyond their control.
Mentoring is a brain to pick, an ear to listen, and a push in the right direction.

Youth is a wonderful thing. What a crime to waste it on children.
