Growing up in this community, it is astounding that these students had the means and motivation to spend their summer in this program. Education, higher-learning, and opportunities has never been the first route to success for students growing up in low-income housing surrounded by gangs, crime, and addiction. All students said there were negative activities that they could have easily participated in rather than the youth’s program, but they knew their future relied on being active in the Somali Family Safety Task force. The SFSTF provides hope to their students, this program truly changed students’ lives.
