#060 Precious Lives: Despite Leadership Changes, Milwaukee Youth Center Remains Safe Haven
One of Precious Lives' first interviews took place at the Holton Youth and Family Center. We set out to explore how gun violence impacts youth in Milwaukee and met many teens during Holton’s after school program who shared stories and insights. And although plenty of these teens have experienced violence firsthand, Holton always provided an alternative - a safe place to have fun.
Since then another youth center, COA Youth and Family Centers, has stepped in to keep afterschool programming running.
Precious Lives' Eric Von spoke with Riverwest Holton Youth Development Programs Manager Greg Reinholt and COA’s Youth Development Director Leslie Quevedo about their vision for the program's next phase.
