Turning Young Lives Around with Support from the Community

A group in Calgary called the Action Committee for Black Affairs is helping young people who have been kicked out of school or are in trouble with the law turn their lives around. The group, led by Lynette Benny, believes that supporting these youth is crucial for the future of the community. They offer mentorship and connect them with resources like probation officers and legal aid lawyers. One success story is Ryan, who went from a troubled youth to a successful entrepreneur and mentor for teens. The group emphasizes the importance of providing support to youth before it’s too late to prevent tragedies like youth violence. For more information on the group’s services, you can contact them at 440-188-4401.
