On Tuesday October 23, our host Aaron Perry spoke with Will Green, the founder of Mentoring Positives. Will has a background in working with children in the juvenile justice system, and he and his wife work primarily with the youth in the Darbo-Worthington neighborhood. “It is essential that the city supports a program like this. We give them a place where [the youth] can come and feel like a family” They work with many mentors in the community, and involve a variety of activities, including family events, to foster a strong sense of community within the children. There will be a banquet celebrating the 8th anniversary of the program at the Discovery Institute on November 10. Two community leaders will be honored with the Muriel Pipkins Award, in honor of Will Green’s mother, who passed away from breast cancer.
