Chicago Forward talks to Friends of the Children - Chicago and others about crime prevention through mentorship

Friends of the Children-Chicago was featured on WGN-TV’s Chicago Forward special on violence reduction in Chicago.

Our work is about more than prevention; it’s about possibility. Every child needs adequate support to overcome the challenges that life presents before them. With support, possibilities grow, opportunities become available and children grow to be thriving adults.

Watch the video above to hear directly from Daniel and his Friend Luckson about the power of professional mentorship.

And be sure to watch this panel of experts – including our own Taal Hasak-Lowy – talk about crime prevention through youth mentorship in the video below.
