Dallas Morning News editorial

In today's Dallas Morning Snooze, there is a small section from the editors on the Dallas County Juvenile Department's new program to help troubled teens. They took 48 of the most at-risk teens, including some who have been imprisoned, and started them out writing journals. This turned into introducing them to theater, art, music, and other alternatives. These journals ended up being combined into a musical that was shown at Southern Methodist University (SMU) three times to packed houses. Corporate sponsors are lining up to help to expand the program, as well.

Looks like this is a good step in the right direction. Great start, DCJD and SMU!

I agree. I think its a good idea to help others out and not coop them up in a jail cell where they prone to depression and other stuff. Good luck.

Many of these troubled kids probably have a need for someone to listen to them, to help them, to get an education and not just punish them. While such programs won't help all such high-risk offenders, it is worth trying in a well organized way to do so. Maybe it can do what juvenial detention is supposed to do, to try to rehilibitate not just jail.

Sounds good. In addition to the improved opportunities, every rehabilitated child or juvenile helps save a lot of money. So this kind of project should be in the best interest of our more vocal resident forum Republicans as well; I guess it is.

Where i work HR hired a summer intern. She works in HR and at our appreciation picnic she went psycho screaming at everyone for touching things and yelling at them, then went on being all sweet. She was from a program called something like "Get kids off the street for the summer". What can you do.

I don't mean to laugh but that sounds funny! Big grin
We could use an intern like that at my job. My co-workers are boring, even when we have functions with an open bar.
