Kids never stop learning even when they're not at school!

But what are they learning? And where? And from whom? Are they learning how to live only within the confines of their neighborhood and social status? Are they learning they are the problem?

We have asked ourselves these questions. Mary - BLK director reflects on ways we can help them learn positively - even when they aren't at school.

Christine's Surprising Story During Quarantine

"I talked to someone at the gas station the other day I use to party with. He was in bad shape, but he was so amazed to see me sober. He kept saying over and over, “At least one of us made it out.” I told him we all could make it out, I encouraged him the best I could. Today,  I’m fascinated by the person I’ve become-I’ve decided I like her!"
