What's the most viable solution when this scenario stands to demonstrate that poor planning decades ago in Brooklyn which lumped whole neighbourhoods of social housing together has led to massive socio-economic degradation which tends to express itself in a cruel, vicious cycle?
Over 77% of these neighbourhoods' families are single-parent, and 1 in 10 males from the area end up in prison due to gang involvement, poverty and drugs, and they usually end up back in prison, time and again.
What's the solution to such an ingrained situation? Greg "Jocko" Jackson, a former NBA player, believes he knows the answer, and is getting in deep with the youth of Brownsville, Brooklyn, with his sleeves rolled up, to positively impact the lives of these young people.
Although the Canadian stance may be slightly different, the fundamental concepts are the same, and history has demonstrated the positive impacts one dedicated person can have on the lives of those born into compromising situations. To those of you who dedicate your time and heart towards the betterment of youth and others without the same level of priviledge as yourselves, the difference being made is very real and critical not only to the lives of those individuals, but also to the very heart of each and every city. Thank you.
