*Leadership Workshop at Lee College
Why does Keith Coleman work with teenagers who are incarcerated? Many young children in America are imperiled by abuse, neglect, domestic and community violence, and poverty. Without motivation, these children will suffer, struggle, and fall into despair and hopelessness about their future. Some young teens cannot manage the emotional, social, and psychological challenges of adolescence and eventually engage in destructive and violent behavior. Sadly, that is the end for many of them. They see no future for themselves, and eventually become part of the prison system. Coleman refuses to ignore the crisis that is effecting our youth. He believes there is path for them to take other than becoming a statistic into the prison system. He provides leadership training in juvenile centers around the country and has had outstanding results from his efforts.
