Visit of the Yo Bro Yo Girl Youth Program by Her Excellency Sharon Johnston
Mrs. Johnston will visit Spectrum School to learn more about the Yo Bro Yo Girl Youth Initiative and to hear from youth beneficiaries about the positive impact the program is having on their lives.
Inspired by the real-life experiences of former Hells Angels member Joe Calendino, the Yo Bro Yo Girl Youth Initiative started in 2009 as an outreach program for youth at risk of involvement in drugs, violence and gangs. This initiative has developed a range of impactful, life-changing programs delivered in the classroom, out of school and during school breaks. The programs reach elementary- and secondary-level boys and girls between the ages of 12 and 18 years.
