One of the teens on the youth panel yesterday mentioned his involvement in the SIMBA Brotherhood as what enabled him to begin having hope in his future and start caring about his education once more. I’ve been researching different youth programs to see what’s available and to whom and also to learn about different programming strategies and goals. What I like about SIMBA is its holistic approach: its program brings together common pragmatic concerns (vocational training, healthy lifestyle choices) with humanistic elements (arts and history education).
