“There is tremendous pressure that young people growing up in certain neighborhoods around here are under from their peers, and from individuals that were never able to break out of that cycle,” says Executive Director David Shehigian. “The pressure to make bad decisions is a daily reality, whether it’s with drug use, criminal activities, or to belong to a gang. We’re trying to present a different type of reality for kids, one child at a time, pulling kids out of that cycle.”
If you’re heading out tonight for a good time with friends, please come support the kids of the Jubilee while you’re at it. Hope to see you there!
*Unlimited Breadsticks might just be the best band name ever…
