One of our best Orgs is entering into a new partnership with the Harris County Juvenile Probation Department to match some of their youths with mentors. This is to help these kids who have made mistakes find a way to not repeat history. Bigs are proven to dramatically increase the chances that a child will graduate from high school and go on to have a productive life, breaking the cycle of poverty.
They are in dire need of men to volunteer and be mentors. So… fellas, you know what to do. Click here for information: www.bbbstx.org

Guests: Debbie Ortiz, Executive Director of America In Recovery, Inc. and Frederick Richert, a man who has given himself another chance at a productive, honest life.
With the help of America In Recovery, Frederick seized the "second chance" they gave him to turn his life around. But crucially, he is the one who went looking for this opportunity after being convicted for a couple of non-violent, petty crimes. Now an ex-con, he lives with the difficult challenge of earning a living in a society which does not like to employ ex-cons. Debbie is on hand to explain how her Org helps people like Frederick meet with employers who are willing to hire ex-cons and how they are actively looking for more.
