At Youth Corporation, Inc. (YCI), we’re dedicated to fostering societal improvement and dismantling the pipeline to incarceration by focusing on critical issues that impact individual and societal well-being. Our latest endeavor, chartering shares of stock to fund workforce development and education, alongside justice system reform, represents a significant stride toward our mission.
A Historic Meeting That Spells Change
In an unprecedented event that can only be described as a divine appointment, YCI found itself at the heart of a historic gathering at the General Assembly. It was a day where politics and purpose aligned, marking a pivotal moment in our journey to reform the criminal justice system.
Central to this momentous day was Mimi, an 8-year-old youth advocate whose presence symbolized the innocence and potential that our efforts aim to protect. Mimi’s interaction with key political figures not only highlighted the urgency of our cause but also the universal appeal it holds.
Champions of Change
Among the distinguished attendees was Speaker of the House, Don Scott, whose own journey from a criminal record to a position of significant political influence embodies the very essence of redemption and transformation we advocate for. His commitment to rehabilitating the criminal justice system resonates deeply with our vision of nurturing safe and healthy communities through avenues like the Construction Trade.
Delegate Michael Jones and Lieutenant Governor Winsome Sears, each influential in their respective rights, bring a wealth of experience and dedication to the table. Their involvement signifies a collective movement towards a system that favors rehabilitation over punishment, and education over incarceration.
A Collective Vision for the Future
Our gathering was further enriched by the presence of esteemed leaders such as Eny Osung, Wardell S. Willie Lanier, Jr., and Dr. Chrys-Ann Ambrose, to name a few. Their diverse backgrounds, ranging from academia to the music industry, underscore the multifaceted approach we’re adopting to address the complexities of systemic reform.
