I decided to focus on helping African American teenagers around the city by assisting them in learning that there are good things about the city. Here, I helped create a program where we got to discover a different section of the city. We organized bookbag drives, helped local law enforcement agencies, etc. There were also a few different field trips that took place. I wanted to show teens that being in a police officer’s presence wasn’t as bad as they thought. Growing up in this city many African American teens were faced with the hardships of losing close friends and family members. I also partnered with a police chief to reach out to non-profit organizations that offered therapy sessions.
