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!
