Redman and DoItAll (Lords of the Underground) Mentoring Our Urban Youth Reentry Program Students (11/8/21)

"Today was a great day that reminded me of how thankful I am for #God & #Growth.  Myself and my brother @remangilla spoke to a group of young fellas between the ages of 18-24 who passed a course on #Construction while they are currently on #Probation.  Our talk was meant to keep them motivated on this journey we call #Life."  Read the full comment on Instagram @doitalldu

We Believe in Second Chances!

For almost 100 years, The League has been helping young people get back on track.  The majority go on to lead positive lives, making valued contributions to their families and the communities where they live and work.

We will never give up on our youth!  Our investments in our young people are both worthy and wise.  After all, today's youth and young adults will determine the richness of our shared future.
