St. Charles on WTMJ’s Morning Blend
Two teens participating in the FOCUS program were featured on WTMJ 4’s popular local news magazine, The Morning Blend. The FOCUS program is an innovative and highly successful alternative to juvenile incarceration initiated by Milwaukee County in 2003. The teens talked about how the program is making a positive difference in their lives.
The teenagers were accompanied by Eric Meaux, Milwaukee County Delinquency & Court Services Division Administrator, as well as St. Charles’ President, Cathy Connolly. In addition to being interviewed, the youth performed a song in conjunction with Figureheads, a widely acclaimed musical group that helps youth express themselves positively through hip hop.
