Anthony* called about an internship with our SHORTSTOP program; just months prior, he attended SHORTSTOP after being caught spraying graffiti. “Since I finished the program, I’ve wanted to work with teens caught up like I was. If I hadn’t got caught, I'd be kickin’ it with the wrong group. Because of SHORTSTOP, my life is going in a different direction." He has since graduated from high school, enrolled at Golden West College and plans to transfer to a university for Criminal Justice.
