BENEFITING: ST PAUL YOUTH SERVICES INC
They asked one of our staff - Emmanuel - to check in with Michael to see if he could help him get back on track. Emmanuel spent time regularly with Michael talking about school, friends, home, etc. What he found out is that Michael's older brother had joined a gang and was recruiting him to join as well.
Emmanuel could tell that Michael knew that wasn't a good idea, but he was conflicted about it. So they kept talking and eventually Michael figured out that Emmanuel was a better role model than his brother.
Every year St. Paul Youth Services works with over 150 students like Michael...helping them stay on track and in school.
$1,500 over this next school year will help keep one young person like Michael in school and on the road to success.
