Juvenile Justice Intervention Center Hosts Annual Thanksgiving Event

JJIC Thanksgiving

NEW ORLEANS — The Juvenile Justice Intervention Center (JJIC), in partnership with the Louisiana Center for Children’s Rights, Ubuntu Village, and SHARP, hosted the annual Thanksgiving event for youth and families. Several participants enjoyed a Thanksgiving meal, live music, and presentations from several young people.

JJIC also partnered with SHARP, a nonprofit that provides professional attire and resources for men trying to overcome workforce barriers to employment. Every young man at the JJIC was provided a fitted suit to wear to the Thanksgiving dinner and for when they leave the facility.

"Mayor Cantrell is committed to improving the conditions at the JJIC and providing our young people with pro-social activities and programs," said Emily Wolff, Director of the Mayor’s Office of Youth and Families. "Furthermore, JJIC leadership is creating more robust re-entry services so our young people are adequately prepared to transition back into their communities. We are so appreciative of all our partners, staff and young people for making this event a great success."

I have been involved with publishing and marketing for the past 37 years. My passion is helping people share their voice. I am able to do this through two important venues: One, with Area-Info.net where people can share everything from opinions to events to news. It is your choice! What do you want to share? Two, through a new program called America's Real Deal I am involved with to help business owners get their voice heard. For people who love to save money and earn while saving, there is a new program called the r network. You are provided with a card that entitles the user to automatic savings on more than 300,000 products. Learn more about the revv card today. This is by invitation only to be some of the first people to get this card. I schedule speaking engagements with community groups and business groups to share my passion about the importance of "sharing your voice".
