LBBA Hosts Youth Career Day for Precious Blood Ministry of Reconciliation
Precious Blood Ministry of Reconciliation (PBMR), a restorative justice center on the South Side of Chicago, visited our office today with a group of 4 young men between the ages of 13-16 who are participating in their 6-week summer program. PBMR primarily serves court-involved and at-risk boys from the Back of the Yards and Englewood neighborhoods. Their center is a safe space for male youth and in addition to advocacy work in the prisons, they host weekly intervention programs for the guys, provide family counseling, and facilitate community meetings. We were excited to talk them about the profession and our work, answer questions, and introduce them to our studio and the interns of bikeLab, LBBA’s own summer internship program in its final week.
