Straight Talk

Straight Talk is a two session class. The first session is presented by a police officer who has a passion for helping at-risk male teenagers between the ages if 10 and 14 to change their behavior. This officer had a rough childhood and wants male teenagers to have a good role model who can relate to the current issues that many deal with in life.

The second session of Straight Talk is presented by a former convict that has a passion to help at-risk teens change their behavior by helping them realize what life is like – both in jail and after being released from prison or a youth detention facility. Straight Talk will address what life is like in the system, in jail, and in the adult prison system. It will also address how being an ex-convict changes how you are treated in the outside world.

Attendees will be expected to participate in the two- two hour sessions by having a dialogue with the presenters and facilitator and answer a series of written questions relating to the experience.
