  • TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS
  • 00:00:07.100 --> 00:00:10.190
  • TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS
  • 00:00:10.210 --> 00:00:19.180
  • - KELLY WRIGHT: WELCOME TO TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS.
  • 00:00:19.200 --> 00:00:21.210
  • ON THIS EPISODE, WE WILL FOCUS ON PUBLIC HEALTH.
  • 00:00:21.230 --> 00:00:25.000
  • PUBLIC HEALTH PROMOTES AND PROTECTS THE HEALTH OF PEOPLE
  • 00:00:25.020 --> 00:00:28.080
  • AND THE COMMUNITIES WHERE THEY WORK, LIVE, AND PLAY.
  • 00:00:28.100 --> 00:00:31.270
  • YOUR FAMILY DOCTOR TREATS YOU WHEN YOU'RE SICK, RIGHT?
  • 00:00:31.290 --> 00:00:35.060
  • WELL PUBLIC HEALTH DOCTORS WORK TO HELP PREVENT YOU
  • 00:00:35.080 --> 00:00:37.130
  • FROM GETTING SICK OR INJURED IN THE FIRST PLACE.
  • 00:00:37.150 --> 00:00:41.090
  • - HEALTH ISN'T JUST THE ABSENCE OF DISEASE,
  • 00:00:41.110 --> 00:00:43.180
  • IT'S FULL WELL BEING, INDIVIDUAL AND COMMUNITY WELL-BEING.
  • 00:00:43.200 --> 00:00:47.260
  • EMOTIONAL, PSYCHOLOGICAL, SPIRITUAL, PHYSICAL,
  • 00:00:47.280 --> 00:00:50.110
  • ALL OF THESE THINGS.
  • 00:00:50.130 --> 00:00:52.040
  • PUBLIC HEALTH MEANS WE'RE NOT JUST SPEAKING
  • 00:00:52.060 --> 00:00:54.180
  • ABOUT THE INDIVIDUAL PERSON,
  • 00:00:54.200 --> 00:00:56.260
  • BUT THE HEALTH OF A COMMUNITY.
  • 00:00:56.280 --> 00:01:00.030
  • - [KELLY] THE PUBLIC HEALTH OF A COMMUNITY
  • 00:01:00.050 --> 00:01:01.270
  • AFFECTS A PERSON'S LIFE SPAN.
  • 00:01:01.290 --> 00:01:04.080
  • THE ZIP CODE OF WHERE YOU LIVE CAN IMPACT YOUR LONGEVITY
  • 00:01:04.100 --> 00:01:08.190
  • BY AS MANY AS 10 YEARS.
  • 00:01:08.210 --> 00:01:11.060
  • - [GARY] WHERE PEOPLE ARE BORN AND WHERE THEY GROW UP
  • 00:01:11.080 --> 00:01:14.090
  • DETERMINES TO THE GREATEST EXTENT THERE IS
  • 00:01:14.110 --> 00:01:17.270
  • AS TO WHETHER THEY'RE GOING TO BE HEALTHY,
  • 00:01:17.290 --> 00:01:19.250
  • WHETHER THEY'RE GOING TO SEE VIOLENCE,
  • 00:01:19.270 --> 00:01:21.220
  • AND WHETHER THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE PROBLEMS IN THEIR LIFE
  • 00:01:21.240 --> 00:01:24.070
  • THAT LIMIT THEIR LIFE EXPECTANCY.
  • 00:01:24.090 --> 00:01:26.240
  • - ON THIS PROGRAM, WE ARE GOING TO FOCUS ON PUBLIC HEALTH'S
  • 00:01:26.260 --> 00:01:30.000
  • VAST AND DIVERSE IMPACT ON OUR COMMUNITIES,
  • 00:01:30.020 --> 00:01:33.190
  • RANGING FROM PARKS AND RECREATION,
  • 00:01:33.210 --> 00:01:35.250
  • WHICH HELPS OUR PHYSICAL HEALTH AS WELL AS
  • 00:01:35.270 --> 00:01:38.040
  • OUR WATER AND AIR QUALITY.
  • 00:01:38.060 --> 00:01:40.110
  • WE WILL ALSO SEE HOW PUBLIC HEALTH IS CHAMPIONING
  • 00:01:40.130 --> 00:01:43.190
  • ON TIME HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION RATES.
  • 00:01:43.210 --> 00:01:46.070
  • AND HOW THIS IMPACTS A PERSON'S ABILITY TO EARN A LIVING
  • 00:01:46.090 --> 00:01:50.230
  • AND EXPERIENCE A BETTER QUALITY OF LIFE.
  • 00:01:50.250 --> 00:01:53.230
  • WE START WITH PUBLIC HEALTH'S INFLUENCE ON VIOLENCE.
  • 00:01:53.250 --> 00:01:58.020
  • GUN VIOLENCE IS A LEADING CAUSE OF PREMATURE DEATH
  • 00:01:58.040 --> 00:02:01.070
  • HERE IN AMERICA.
  • 00:02:01.090 --> 00:02:02.170
  • 38.000 PEOPLE DIE EVERY YEAR
  • 00:02:02.190 --> 00:02:05.050
  • AND ANOTHER 85.000 PEOPLE GET INJURED
  • 00:02:05.070 --> 00:02:08.020
  • DUE TO FIRE ARM VIOLENCE.
  • 00:02:08.040 --> 00:02:11.080
  • - [GARY] VIOLENCE IS AN EPIDEMIC CONTAGIOUS DISEASE
  • 00:02:11.100 --> 00:02:14.010
  • THAT AMERICA'S HAD FOR A LONG TIME.
  • 00:02:14.030 --> 00:02:17.080
  • - DOCTOR GARY SLUTKIN IS A PUBLIC HEALTH PROFESSOR
  • 00:02:17.100 --> 00:02:19.280
  • AND FOUNDER OF CURE VIOLENCE.
  • 00:02:20.000 --> 00:02:22.160
  • CURE VIOLENCE IS REDUCING COMMUNITY VIOLENCE
  • 00:02:22.180 --> 00:02:25.190
  • BY AS MUCH AS 60% IN THE COMMUNITIES
  • 00:02:25.210 --> 00:02:29.060
  • THAT USE ITS PROGRAM STRATEGY.
  • 00:02:29.080 --> 00:02:32.020
  • THE STRATEGY IS TO TREAT VIOLENCE
  • 00:02:32.040 --> 00:02:34.010
  • LIKE YOU WOULD TREAT AN INFECTIOUS DISEASE.
  • 00:02:34.030 --> 00:02:37.060
  • IT WORKS LIKE THIS.
  • 00:02:37.080 --> 00:02:38.160
  • WHEN A VIOLENT ACT IS DONE TO A PERSON,
  • 00:02:38.180 --> 00:02:41.080
  • THEY ARE INFECTED LIKE A DISEASE.
  • 00:02:41.100 --> 00:02:44.250
  • THEY WILL GIVE THAT INFECTIOUS DISEASE TO SOMEONE ELSE,
  • 00:02:44.270 --> 00:02:48.060
  • MOST LIKELY IN RETALIATION TO THEIR ABUSER
  • 00:02:48.080 --> 00:02:51.100
  • OR ANOTHER PERSON THEY COME IN CONTACT WITH.
  • 00:02:51.120 --> 00:02:54.180
  • WHEN A PUBLIC HEALTH OFFICIAL IS THERE,
  • 00:02:54.200 --> 00:02:56.290
  • THEY CAN STOP THE RETALIATION
  • 00:02:57.010 --> 00:02:59.100
  • AND THE SPREAD OF FUTURE VIOLENCE.
  • 00:02:59.120 --> 00:03:02.110
  • - I'M A PHYSICIAN, AN EPIDEMIOLOGIST,
  • 00:03:02.130 --> 00:03:04.240
  • INFECTIOUS DISEASE DOCTOR.
  • 00:03:04.260 --> 00:03:06.080
  • I WORK WITH THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION,
  • 00:03:06.100 --> 00:03:08.250
  • AND WHAT WE ARE DOING WITH CURE VIOLENCE
  • 00:03:08.270 --> 00:03:09.280
  • IS BASICALLY JUST TRANSFERRING THE METHODS
  • 00:03:10.000 --> 00:03:12.120
  • OF EPIDEMIC CONTROL FROM THE WORLD OF CHOLERA AND TB
  • 00:03:12.140 --> 00:03:17.270
  • AND AIDS INTO THE WORLD OF VIOLENCE.
  • 00:03:17.290 --> 00:03:20.060
  • AND FORTUNATELY IT WORKS VERY WELL.
  • 00:03:20.080 --> 00:03:23.120
  • - [KELLY] CURE VIOLENCE PROGRAMS ARE HELPING
  • 00:03:23.140 --> 00:03:25.150
  • 25 CITIES IN AMERICA.
  • 00:03:25.170 --> 00:03:27.260
  • TO BETTER UNDERSTAND HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS,
  • 00:03:27.280 --> 00:03:30.150
  • WE WENT TO THE LARGEST HOUSING PROJECT IN NORTH AMERICA.
  • 00:03:30.170 --> 00:03:34.110
  • THE QUEENSBRIDGE PROJECTS, KNOWN AS THE 696.
  • 00:03:34.130 --> 00:03:39.240
  • THIS HOUSING PROJECT IS SIX CITY BLOCKS LONG
  • 00:03:39.260 --> 00:03:42.240
  • AND HOUSES 96 HIGH RISE BUILDINGS.
  • 00:03:42.260 --> 00:03:46.180
  • THIS COMMUNITY IS FILLED WITH DRUGS, GANGS, AND VIOLENCE.
  • 00:03:46.200 --> 00:03:52.040
  • WEEKLY SHOOTINGS AND DEATHS HAVE BEEN PART OF
  • 00:03:52.060 --> 00:03:54.100
  • THIS AREA'S HISTORY FOR DECADES.
  • 00:03:54.120 --> 00:03:57.200
  • - [MAN] PEOPLE WERE GETTING SHOT.
  • 00:03:57.220 --> 00:03:59.040
  • PEOPLE WERE GETTING STABBED.
  • 00:03:59.060 --> 00:04:00.040
  • PEOPLE WERE GETTING KILLED.
  • 00:04:00.060 --> 00:04:01.160
  • - THE VIOLENCE IN QUEENSBRIDGE HAS ALWAYS BEEN CRAZY.
  • 00:04:01.180 --> 00:04:05.170
  • I WAS USED TO SEEING PEOPLE GET SHOT, KILLED,
  • 00:04:05.190 --> 00:04:08.180
  • GO TO JAIL.
  • 00:04:08.200 --> 00:04:10.080
  • - AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK, SOMEBODY WAS GETTING SHOT.
  • 00:04:10.100 --> 00:04:12.180
  • - LIKE MANY AMERICANS, WE OFTEN ASK
  • 00:04:12.200 --> 00:04:14.270
  • HOW CAN THIS STOP HAPPENING AND WHY IS THIS HAPPENING?
  • 00:04:14.290 --> 00:04:19.130
  • - WHY IS SOMEONE DOING VIOLENCE?
  • 00:04:19.150 --> 00:04:21.110
  • WELL IT'S BECAUSE THEY WERE EXPOSED TO VIOLENCE.
  • 00:04:21.130 --> 00:04:24.130
  • WHY IS SOMEONE DOING VIOLENCE AGAIN?
  • 00:04:24.150 --> 00:04:26.050
  • IT'S BECAUSE THEY HAVEN'T BEEN TREATED OR MANAGED
  • 00:04:26.070 --> 00:04:29.020
  • OR HELPED OR REACHED OUT TO OR SUPPORTED.
  • 00:04:29.040 --> 00:04:31.230
  • - [KELLY] IF SOMEONE HAS BEEN VIOLATED, THEY WILL OFTEN
  • 00:04:31.250 --> 00:04:35.070
  • WANT TO RETALIATE WITH VIOLENCE EITHER TO THEIR ABUSER
  • 00:04:35.090 --> 00:04:38.260
  • OR SOMEONE ELSE.
  • 00:04:38.280 --> 00:04:40.220
  • IN THE MIDDLE OF THE 696 IS THE CURE VIOLENCE CENTER.
  • 00:04:40.240 --> 00:04:44.240
  • IN THIS OFFICE, THEY ARE ABLE TO HELP MONITOR
  • 00:04:44.260 --> 00:04:48.000
  • THE PROJECT'S DISTURBANCES 24 SEVEN.
  • 00:04:48.020 --> 00:04:51.170
  • WHEN A VIOLENT ACT OCCURS, THEY IMMEDIATELY
  • 00:04:51.190 --> 00:04:54.220
  • PUT A VIOLENCE INTERRUPTER INTO THE MIDDLE OF THE FIGHT
  • 00:04:54.240 --> 00:04:58.220
  • TO HELP THE VIOLENCE FROM BEING REPRODUCED.
  • 00:04:58.240 --> 00:05:01.250
  • - CURE VIOLENCE IS USING OUTREACH WORKERS
  • 00:05:01.270 --> 00:05:05.180
  • AND VIOLENCE INTERRUPTERS FROM THE COMMUNITY ITSELF
  • 00:05:05.200 --> 00:05:08.290
  • TO ACTUALLY HELP TRANSFORM INDIVIDUALS AND THE COMMUNITY.
  • 00:05:09.010 --> 00:05:14.280
  • CURE VIOLENCE IS A WAY IN WHICH VIOLENCE IS BEING MANAGED
  • 00:05:15.000 --> 00:05:18.130
  • JUST LIKE ANY OTHER EPIDEMIC.
  • 00:05:18.150 --> 00:05:20.120
  • SO IF THERE'S ONE VIOLENT EVENT,
  • 00:05:20.140 --> 00:05:22.200
  • CURE VIOLENCE WORKERS CAN STOP
  • 00:05:22.220 --> 00:05:24.210
  • RETALIATIONS AND FURTHER EVENTS.
  • 00:05:24.230 --> 00:05:27.180
  • - ON THE FRONT LINE OF THE WORK FORCE
  • 00:05:27.200 --> 00:05:28.270
  • ARE VIOLENCE INTERRUPTERS,
  • 00:05:28.290 --> 00:05:30.290
  • ALSO KNOWN AS CREDIBLE MESSENGERS.
  • 00:05:31.010 --> 00:05:33.220
  • CREDIBLE BECAUSE THEY COME FROM THE SAME STREETS
  • 00:05:33.240 --> 00:05:36.250
  • AND HARD LIFE AS THE INDIVIDUALS
  • 00:05:36.270 --> 00:05:39.100
  • CAUGHT IN THE CYCLE OF VIOLENCE.
  • 00:05:39.120 --> 00:05:42.080
  • - [GARY] A VIOLENT INTERRUPTER IS SOMEONE WHO
  • 00:05:42.100 --> 00:05:44.040
  • HAS THE RELATIONSHIPS AND CREDIBILITY AND TRUST
  • 00:05:44.060 --> 00:05:46.290
  • OF THE PEOPLE WHO HE OR SHE, IT'S USUALLY HE,
  • 00:05:47.010 --> 00:05:49.110
  • HAS TO INTERACT WITH.
  • 00:05:49.130 --> 00:05:51.040
  • - I'M A CREDIBLE MESSENGER.
  • 00:05:51.060 --> 00:05:53.010
  • I AM BORN AND RAISED IN QUEENSBRIDGE,
  • 00:05:53.030 --> 00:05:54.100
  • EXPERIENCED A LOT OF VIOLENCE IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:05:54.120 --> 00:05:57.040
  • - THE MAJORITY OF US HAVE BEEN INCARCERATED.
  • 00:05:57.060 --> 00:05:58.230
  • - I RAN WITH THE GUYS.
  • 00:05:58.250 --> 00:06:01.110
  • I WAS IN THE STREETS.
  • 00:06:01.130 --> 00:06:02.200
  • - THE VIOLENCE INTERRUPTER CAN HELP THAT PERSON
  • 00:06:02.220 --> 00:06:04.270
  • RETHINK WHAT HE'S THINKING.
  • 00:06:04.290 --> 00:06:07.120
  • - SO THE VIOLENCE INTERRUPTERS HAVE TO BE IN THE LOOP.
  • 00:06:07.140 --> 00:06:09.280
  • THEY HAVE TO KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON,
  • 00:06:10.000 --> 00:06:11.230
  • MANY TIMES BEFORE LAW ENFORCEMENT EVEN HAS A GLIMPSE
  • 00:06:11.250 --> 00:06:14.190
  • THAT SOMETHING'S COMIN', THEY SHOULD KNOW.
  • 00:06:14.210 --> 00:06:17.070
  • BEING AHEAD OF VIOLENCE.
  • 00:06:17.090 --> 00:06:18.080
  • THIS IS ABOUT PREVENTION.
  • 00:06:18.100 --> 00:06:19.220
  • WE'VE ESTABLISHED WHERE THE VIOLENCE IS,
  • 00:06:19.240 --> 00:06:22.050
  • AND IT'S MOVIN' LIKE A DISEASE, THEY ARE THE ANTIBODIES.
  • 00:06:22.070 --> 00:06:24.100
  • THEY HAVE TO THEN BE ABLE TO POSITION THEMSELVES
  • 00:06:24.120 --> 00:06:26.200
  • IN A WAY TO STAY BETWEEN.
  • 00:06:26.220 --> 00:06:28.250
  • - TELL THEM LIKE, LEARN FROM MY MISTAKES.
  • 00:06:28.270 --> 00:06:30.240
  • LEARN FROM THE THINGS THAT I'VE DONE
  • 00:06:30.260 --> 00:06:32.240
  • AND MOVE FORWARD.
  • 00:06:32.260 --> 00:06:34.120
  • LIKE LET'S BE BETTER.
  • 00:06:34.140 --> 00:06:36.040
  • - [KELLY] MEDIATION IS CRITICAL FOR THE VIOLENT PARTIES
  • 00:06:36.060 --> 00:06:39.070
  • TO WORK OUT THE DISPUTE WITH UNDERSTANDING AND WORDS.
  • 00:06:39.090 --> 00:06:43.040
  • THIS NON VIOLENT APPROACH HELPS TO DEAL WITH THE CHALLENGE.
  • 00:06:43.060 --> 00:06:47.250
  • - IT'S ABOUT RECONCILIATION.
  • 00:06:47.270 --> 00:06:50.060
  • IT'S ABOUT GETTING PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND THAT
  • 00:06:50.080 --> 00:06:54.070
  • SOMETIMES WHAT SEEMS LIKE A LIFE AND DEATH SITUATION
  • 00:06:54.090 --> 00:06:58.180
  • CAN BE REMEDIED WITHOUT THE LOSS OF LIFE
  • 00:06:58.200 --> 00:07:01.150
  • OR SOMEONE BEING INCARCERATED FOR 25 YEARS OR MORE.
  • 00:07:01.170 --> 00:07:05.130
  • WE USE ALL OF OUR CREDIBILITY AND RESPECT
  • 00:07:05.150 --> 00:07:08.090
  • TO DEESCALATE A SITUATION.
  • 00:07:08.110 --> 00:07:10.040
  • WE'RE GONNA TRY TO REACH SOME TYPE OF POSITIVE CONCLUSION,
  • 00:07:10.060 --> 00:07:13.160
  • SO WE PUT OURSELVES INTO THE EQUATION.
  • 00:07:13.180 --> 00:07:15.270
  • WE TRY NOT TO TAKE SIDES.
  • 00:07:15.290 --> 00:07:18.250
  • - [SHYSM] WE FIND WAYS TO CO EXIST.
  • 00:07:18.270 --> 00:07:20.100
  • TRY TO RECTIFY AND THEN SEE HOW WE CAN FIX THE INJUSTICE
  • 00:07:20.120 --> 00:07:23.240
  • BETWEEN THE TWO PARTIES.
  • 00:07:23.260 --> 00:07:25.070
  • - VIOLENCE IS NOT SOMETHING THAT PEOPLE WANT TO DO.
  • 00:07:25.090 --> 00:07:28.220
  • VIOLENT BEHAVIOR IS NOT THE HARDEST BEHAVIOR TO CHANGE.
  • 00:07:28.240 --> 00:07:31.250
  • REALLY HARD BEHAVIORS TO CHANGE ARE SMOKING BEHAVIOR
  • 00:07:31.270 --> 00:07:34.050
  • AND SEXUAL BEHAVIOR.
  • 00:07:34.070 --> 00:07:35.120
  • THEY DON'T WANT TO BE INVOLVED IN IT,
  • 00:07:35.140 --> 00:07:36.180
  • THEY JUST DON'T SEE THE WAY OUT.
  • 00:07:36.200 --> 00:07:38.220
  • THE BREAD AND BUTTER OF EPIDEMIC CONTROL
  • 00:07:38.240 --> 00:07:41.130
  • APPLIED TO VIOLENCE FAST DROPS, SUSTAIN DROPS.
  • 00:07:41.150 --> 00:07:45.190
  • WE'RE GETTING 65, 70% DROPS IN VIOLENCE IN U.S. CITIES.
  • 00:07:45.210 --> 00:07:50.250
  • WE DON'T TRY TO GET IT DOWN JUST A LITTLE BIT,
  • 00:07:50.270 --> 00:07:53.130
  • WE TRY TO GET RID OF IT.
  • 00:07:53.150 --> 00:07:54.230
  • - [K. BAIN] OUR FIRST YEAR OUT, WE HAD 365 DAYS,
  • 00:07:54.250 --> 00:07:57.010
  • NO SHOOTING, NO KILLING IN THE LARGEST HOUSING DEVELOPMENT
  • 00:07:57.030 --> 00:07:59.150
  • IN NORTH AMERICA.
  • 00:07:59.170 --> 00:08:01.010
  • - [GARY] CURE VIOLENCE IS THE PUBLIC HEALTH WAY
  • 00:08:01.030 --> 00:08:03.070
  • OF REDUCING VIOLENCE, AND IT'S BEEN CATEGORIZED
  • 00:08:03.090 --> 00:08:07.000
  • BY THE ECONOMIST AS THE WAY OF THE FUTURE.
  • 00:08:07.020 --> 00:08:09.200
  • - I'M ALWAYS HOPEFUL, AND THE STRUGGLE IS BEAUTIFUL.
  • 00:08:09.220 --> 00:08:13.060
  • IT DEFINITELY IS A GOOD FIGHT,
  • 00:08:13.080 --> 00:08:14.120
  • AND I HOPE TO BE A SMALL PART OF CHANGING THE WAY
  • 00:08:14.140 --> 00:08:17.120
  • THAT WE LOOK AT THIS EPIDEMIC OF VIOLENCE.
  • 00:08:17.140 --> 00:08:20.170
  • - WE SEE THE VIOLENCE GOING AWAY.
  • 00:08:20.190 --> 00:08:22.290
  • WE SEE PEOPLE LIVING LONGER,
  • 00:08:23.010 --> 00:08:24.130
  • OR WE SEE PEOPLE BEING HEALTHIER AND HAPPIER.
  • 00:08:24.150 --> 00:08:26.040
  • WE SEE COMMUNITIES GETTING ALONG WITH EACH OTHER BETTER.
  • 00:08:26.060 --> 00:08:29.250
  • VIOLENCE CAN BE REDUCED FAST AND IT CAN BE SUSTAINED.
  • 00:08:29.270 --> 00:08:34.020
  • AND WE CAN PUT VIOLENCE BEHIND US.
  • 00:08:34.040 --> 00:08:37.080
  • - THE PUBLIC HEALTH APPROACH OF STOPPING VIOLENCE
  • 00:08:37.100 --> 00:08:39.200
  • IN OUR COMMUNITIES GIVES US HOPE FOR A BETTER TOMORROW.
  • 00:08:39.220 --> 00:08:44.210
  • NOW ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF HOW PUBLIC HEATH WORKS
  • 00:08:44.230 --> 00:08:46.010
  • IS IN HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION RATES.
  • 00:08:46.030 --> 00:08:48.220
  • STATISTICS SHOW THAT HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS
  • 00:08:48.240 --> 00:08:50.240
  • WHO GRADUATE ON TIME LIVE LONGER AND HAVE HEALTHIER LIVES
  • 00:08:50.260 --> 00:08:55.000
  • THAN STUDENTS WHO DROP OUT OF SCHOOL.
  • 00:08:55.020 --> 00:08:57.240
  • THIS IS DUE IN PART TO THE HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATE'S ABILITY
  • 00:08:57.260 --> 00:09:01.190
  • TO EARN MORE MONEY, AFFORD BETTER HEALTH CARE,
  • 00:09:01.210 --> 00:09:04.140
  • AND HOUSING IN SAFER NEIGHBORHOODS.
  • 00:09:04.160 --> 00:09:07.040
  • 20% OF AMERICAN STUDENTS ARE MISSING THIS OPPORTUNITY
  • 00:09:07.060 --> 00:09:11.030
  • BY NOT GRADUATING HIGH SCHOOL.
  • 00:09:11.050 --> 00:09:13.170
  • AND PUBLIC HEALTH OFFICIALS ARE CREATING PROGRAMS NOW
  • 00:09:13.190 --> 00:09:16.230
  • TO HELP TODAY'S HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS
  • 00:09:16.250 --> 00:09:18.270
  • GRADUATE AND TO DO IT ON TIME.
  • 00:09:18.290 --> 00:09:22.090
  • - WHEN STUDENTS DON'T GRADUATE HIGH SCHOOL,
  • 00:09:22.110 --> 00:09:23.210
  • IT'S A GRIM FUTURE.
  • 00:09:23.230 --> 00:09:25.060
  • IT'S FRIGHTENING IN FACT.
  • 00:09:25.080 --> 00:09:26.280
  • ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU LOOK AT MINORITY STUDENTS
  • 00:09:27.000 --> 00:09:28.080
  • WHO DON'T GRADUATE, 80% OF THEM END UP
  • 00:09:28.100 --> 00:09:31.010
  • SOMEWHERE IN THE JUSTICE SYSTEM.
  • 00:09:31.030 --> 00:09:32.120
  • BY NOT HAVING YOUR GRADUATION DIPLOMA, IT'S HUGE,
  • 00:09:32.140 --> 00:09:33.250
  • IT'S A BIG DIFFERENCE.
  • 00:09:33.270 --> 00:09:34.250
  • - WITHOUT A HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA,
  • 00:09:34.270 --> 00:09:36.090
  • YOU'RE GONNA HAVE TROUBLE MAKING A LIVING.
  • 00:09:36.110 --> 00:09:37.270
  • YOU'RE GONNA HAVE TROUBLE SUPPORTING YOURSELF
  • 00:09:37.290 --> 00:09:40.000
  • OR YOUR FAMILY.
  • 00:09:40.020 --> 00:09:41.150
  • - [KELLY] COMMON CHALLENGES FOR STUDENTS TO NOT
  • 00:09:41.170 --> 00:09:44.260
  • FINISH HIGH SCHOOL ARE ABSENTEEISM, BULLYING,
  • 00:09:44.280 --> 00:09:47.150
  • CHRONIC STRESS DUE TO FAMILY CHALLENGES,
  • 00:09:47.170 --> 00:09:49.290
  • FINANCIAL BURDENS, AND COMING FROM AN UNDERPRIVILEGED HOME.
  • 00:09:50.010 --> 00:09:54.000
  • WE LEARN HOW ONE IMPOVERISHED SCHOOL
  • 00:09:54.020 --> 00:09:56.160
  • IS RISING ABOVE THESE CHALLENGES.
  • 00:09:56.180 --> 00:09:59.160
  • - WE ARE A SCHOOL THAT IS A 50% ECONOMICALLY DISADVANTAGED.
  • 00:09:59.180 --> 00:10:03.050
  • WE HAVE STUDENTS THAT ARE LEAVING TO GO HOME TO A HOTEL.
  • 00:10:03.070 --> 00:10:06.010
  • WE HAVE STUDENTS THAT SOMETIMES
  • 00:10:06.030 --> 00:10:08.100
  • ARE GOING HOME TO SINGLE PARENTS.
  • 00:10:08.120 --> 00:10:10.040
  • STUDENTS THAT LEAVE TO GO HOME TO BY THEMSELVES.
  • 00:10:10.060 --> 00:10:12.240
  • THEY'RE MANAGING IT ALL ON THEIR OWN.
  • 00:10:12.260 --> 00:10:14.190
  • WE HAVE STUDENTS WHO GO HOME TO AN OVERCROWDED HOUSE,
  • 00:10:14.210 --> 00:10:17.150
  • NOT SURE WHERE THEY'RE GOING TO SLEEP AT THAT MOMENT,
  • 00:10:17.170 --> 00:10:19.180
  • WHERE THEY'RE GOING TO EAT, WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:10:19.200 --> 00:10:23.190
  • - [VINCENT] THAT CREATES QUITE A CHALLENGE, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:10:23.210 --> 00:10:25.190
  • THE RESEARCH WILL SUPPORT THAT.
  • 00:10:25.210 --> 00:10:27.240
  • WHEN STUDENTS COME FROM HOMES WHERE THAT MONEY
  • 00:10:27.260 --> 00:10:29.210
  • ISN'T AVAILABLE OR THAT PARENT DOESN'T HAVE
  • 00:10:29.230 --> 00:10:32.140
  • THAT BACK UP EDUCATION, YOU TEND TO GET THE SAME THING,
  • 00:10:32.160 --> 00:10:34.000
  • IT'S A DOWNWARD SPIRAL THAT CONTINUES.
  • 00:10:34.020 --> 00:10:37.050
  • - [DANIEL] WE HAVE KIDS EXPERIENCING FAMILY PROBLEMS
  • 00:10:37.070 --> 00:10:40.170
  • AND EMOTIONAL PROBLEMS.
  • 00:10:40.190 --> 00:10:42.160
  • DEPRESSION, SOMETIMES HELPLESSNESS.
  • 00:10:42.180 --> 00:10:46.050
  • - THERE'S A LOT OF DRUGS AND NEGATIVE INFLUENCE.
  • 00:10:46.070 --> 00:10:48.260
  • THERE'S A LACK OF THAT, LACK OF FAMILY STRUCTURE.
  • 00:10:48.280 --> 00:10:51.180
  • A LACK OF ROLE MODELS AND A LACK OF DIRECTION.
  • 00:10:51.200 --> 00:10:54.110
  • SO WE TRY AND PROVIDE THAT.
  • 00:10:54.130 --> 00:10:56.010
  • TO BE QUITE HONEST WITH YOU, OUR STUDENTS
  • 00:10:56.030 --> 00:10:57.090
  • ARE HERE PROBABLY MORE THAN THEY ARE AT HOME.
  • 00:10:57.110 --> 00:10:59.090
  • THEY SPEND A LOT OF TIME HERE.
  • 00:10:59.110 --> 00:11:00.280
  • - [KELLY] THESE STUDENTS OFTEN SPEND MORE TIME AT SCHOOL,
  • 00:11:01.000 --> 00:11:03.210
  • RATHER THAT AT HOME, BECAUSE IT'S THEIR SAFE PLACE.
  • 00:11:03.230 --> 00:11:07.200
  • - WHATEVER IS GOING ON IN THE OUTSIDE COMMUNITY
  • 00:11:07.220 --> 00:11:10.070
  • DOES NOT IMPACT WHAT WE DO HERE.
  • 00:11:10.090 --> 00:11:11.180
  • - SOMETIMES THE FAMILY SITUATION IS SO OVERWHELMING
  • 00:11:11.200 --> 00:11:14.180
  • THAT WHEN THEY COME TO SCHOOL, THIS IS A SAFE HAVEN.
  • 00:11:14.200 --> 00:11:17.260
  • - [KELLY] A SCHOOL THAT IS A SAFE HAVEN FOR STUDENTS
  • 00:11:17.280 --> 00:11:20.050
  • STARTS WITH CARING TEACHERS AND SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS.
  • 00:11:20.070 --> 00:11:24.120
  • - IT'S BECAUSE WE CARE, WE CARE.
  • 00:11:24.140 --> 00:11:27.200
  • AND THAT'S REALLY WHAT IT IS.
  • 00:11:27.220 --> 00:11:29.180
  • WE WORRY ABOUT EVERY INDIVIDUAL KID.
  • 00:11:29.200 --> 00:11:32.000
  • - IT'S A CONCERTED EFFORT.
  • 00:11:32.020 --> 00:11:33.020
  • IT'S EDUCATORS THAT CARE.
  • 00:11:33.040 --> 00:11:34.210
  • THERE'S TEACHERS THAT CARE.
  • 00:11:34.230 --> 00:11:36.100
  • THERE'S PRINCIPALS THAT CARE.
  • 00:11:36.120 --> 00:11:37.210
  • THEY'RE PASSIONATE, WE'RE WORKING TOGETHER AS A TEAM.
  • 00:11:37.230 --> 00:11:39.210
  • AND EVERYONE CARES, AND THERE'S A MISSION,
  • 00:11:39.230 --> 00:11:41.290
  • AND THAT'S TO GET KIDS TO BE SUCCESSFUL.
  • 00:11:42.010 --> 00:11:43.230
  • I TELL MY TEACHERS ALL THE TIME,
  • 00:11:43.260 --> 00:11:45.000
  • THEY'RE NOT YOUR VALUES, THEY'RE OUR VALUES.
  • 00:11:45.020 --> 00:11:46.190
  • WHEN A STUDENT'S NOT DOING WELL IN YOUR CLASS,
  • 00:11:46.210 --> 00:11:48.000
  • IT'S NOT YOUR PROBLEM, IT'S OUR PROBLEM.
  • 00:11:48.020 --> 00:11:49.090
  • EVERYONE'S SURROUNDING THAT STUDENT WITH
  • 00:11:49.110 --> 00:11:50.230
  • THAT KIND OF NETWORK OF SUPPORT.
  • 00:11:50.250 --> 00:11:52.150
  • AND THAT'S IMPORTANT TO US.
  • 00:11:52.170 --> 00:11:53.260
  • - I'VE NEVER RECEIVED MORE SUPPORT FROM ANY SCHOOL
  • 00:11:53.280 --> 00:11:56.000
  • OTHER THAN THIS ONE.
  • 00:11:56.020 --> 00:11:59.000
  • THEY'RE, LIKE EVEN THE TEACHERS, THEY'RE GREAT TO TALK TO.
  • 00:11:59.020 --> 00:12:00.230
  • PEOPLE WITH HEARTS AND PEOPLE THAT GENUINELY CARE.
  • 00:12:00.250 --> 00:12:04.080
  • - MY TEACHER IS ALWAYS HELPING ME.
  • 00:12:04.100 --> 00:12:06.220
  • MY PRINCIPAL AND MY ASSISTANT PRINCIPALS,
  • 00:12:06.240 --> 00:12:07.260
  • THEY'RE ALWAYS HELPING ME.
  • 00:12:07.280 --> 00:12:09.070
  • THEY WANT TO SEE ME GRADUATE.
  • 00:12:09.090 --> 00:12:10.200
  • THEY HELP ME.
  • 00:12:10.220 --> 00:12:11.140
  • - WE DO NOT HAVE FAILURE.
  • 00:12:11.160 --> 00:12:12.290
  • WE DON'T ACCEPT FAILURE IN THIS SCHOOL.
  • 00:12:13.010 --> 00:12:15.240
  • WE FIND IT OFFENSIVE.
  • 00:12:15.260 --> 00:12:17.130
  • - [KESHA] OUR COMMITMENT TO GET KIDS GRADUATING
  • 00:12:17.150 --> 00:12:21.270
  • FROM HIGH SCHOOL ON TIME IS USUALLY 100%.
  • 00:12:21.290 --> 00:12:23.160
  • WHEN I SAY 100%, WE LITERALLY TAKE 100%.
  • 00:12:23.180 --> 00:12:27.200
  • WE LOOK AT EVERY STUDENT THAT'S A SENIOR
  • 00:12:27.220 --> 00:12:31.120
  • AND WE PUT EVERYTHING IN PLACE TO MAKE SURE
  • 00:12:31.140 --> 00:12:33.040
  • THEY'RE ABLE TO GRADUATE.
  • 00:12:33.060 --> 00:12:35.290
  • - [KELLY] THESE CARING PROFESSIONALS HAVE LEARNED
  • 00:12:36.010 --> 00:12:37.060
  • THAT MAKING SURE THAT HIGH SCHOOL 12TH GRADERS
  • 00:12:37.080 --> 00:12:39.050
  • GRADUATE ON TIME STARTS BEFORE THEY BEGIN HIGH SCHOOL.
  • 00:12:39.070 --> 00:12:43.190
  • THESE STUDENTS ARE EIGHTH GRADE STUDENTS
  • 00:12:43.210 --> 00:12:46.100
  • FROM A PREP SEMINAR TO HELP THEM UNDERSTAND
  • 00:12:46.120 --> 00:12:48.080
  • THE COMMITMENT TO LEARNING
  • 00:12:48.100 --> 00:12:49.240
  • AND REACHING THE GOAL OF GRADUATION.
  • 00:12:49.260 --> 00:12:52.170
  • - WE MEET WITH THOSE STUDENTS IN THE SPRING
  • 00:12:52.190 --> 00:12:53.290
  • OF THEIR EIGHTH GRADE YEAR.
  • 00:12:54.010 --> 00:12:55.070
  • WHEN YOU TRANSITION INTO A NEW HIGH SCHOOL,
  • 00:12:55.090 --> 00:12:56.280
  • IT'S EASY TO GET LOST.
  • 00:12:57.000 --> 00:12:58.070
  • AND WE CAN'T FIND THEM IN JANUARY AND FEBRUARY
  • 00:12:58.090 --> 00:13:00.150
  • OF THEIR NINTH GRADE YEAR, IT'S TOO LATE.
  • 00:13:00.170 --> 00:13:02.200
  • - THIS IS WHERE THE MIDDLE SCHOOL, HIGH SCHOOL PARTNERSHIP
  • 00:13:02.220 --> 00:13:04.260
  • HAS BEEN SO VALUABLE.
  • 00:13:04.280 --> 00:13:06.090
  • WE IDENTIFY KIDS THAT MIGHT NEED A LITTLE MORE SUPPORT
  • 00:13:06.110 --> 00:13:08.240
  • WHEN THEY COME IN, AND WE FOCUS ON ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING
  • 00:13:08.260 --> 00:13:12.200
  • THAT YOU NEED IN ORDER TO SUCCEED.
  • 00:13:12.220 --> 00:13:14.090
  • WE'VE MADE A REAL ATMOSPHERE OF WHERE'S OUR FUTURE GOAL?
  • 00:13:14.110 --> 00:13:18.090
  • WHERE ARE WE GOING WITH IT?
  • 00:13:18.110 --> 00:13:19.130
  • AND HOW ARE WE GOING TO GET THERE?
  • 00:13:19.150 --> 00:13:21.050
  • - [KELLY] ONCE IN HIGH SCHOOL, SOME STUDENTS HAVE
  • 00:13:21.070 --> 00:13:24.230
  • A HARD TIME KEEPING UP WITH THEIR EDUCATION.
  • 00:13:24.250 --> 00:13:26.260
  • HAVING A ONE ON ONE TUTOR CAN HELP THEM LEARN.
  • 00:13:26.280 --> 00:13:30.180
  • HOWEVER, A TUTOR IN AMERICA TODAY CAN COST
  • 00:13:30.200 --> 00:13:33.200
  • BETWEEN 30 TO $85 PER HOUR.
  • 00:13:33.220 --> 00:13:37.090
  • FOR THESE UNDERPRIVILEGED STUDENTS,
  • 00:13:37.110 --> 00:13:39.060
  • THAT'S AN EXPENSE THAT MOST FAMILIES CANNOT AFFORD.
  • 00:13:39.080 --> 00:13:43.040
  • SO THE TEACHERS AND ADMINISTRATORS AND UPPERCLASSMEN
  • 00:13:43.060 --> 00:13:46.230
  • TUTOR FOR FREE.
  • 00:13:46.250 --> 00:13:48.230
  • - THE CHILDREN DO NOT HAVE TO PAY EXTRA FOR THESE SERVICES.
  • 00:13:48.250 --> 00:13:51.030
  • A LOT OF IT IS TEACHERS GIVING THEIR OWN TIME.
  • 00:13:51.050 --> 00:13:53.030
  • JUST TEACHERS WHO STAY AND WORK LATE AND CARE
  • 00:13:53.050 --> 00:13:55.200
  • TO HELP THEIR KIDS.
  • 00:13:55.220 --> 00:13:57.020
  • - I WAS DOING HORRIBLE, BUT ONCE I SEE MR. GIBBONS.
  • 00:13:57.040 --> 00:14:01.180
  • I ASK MR. GIBBONS CAN YOU HELP ME.
  • 00:14:01.200 --> 00:14:05.060
  • A HAVE A 20, AND HE'S LIKE SURE, I CAN HELP YOU WITH THAT.
  • 00:14:05.080 --> 00:14:10.060
  • ONCE HE HELPED ME, IT WENT UP.
  • 00:14:10.080 --> 00:14:12.160
  • AND I CAN SEE THAT HE DID HELP ME A LOT.
  • 00:14:12.180 --> 00:14:16.090
  • - WE FORM RELATIONSHIPS WITH KIDS.
  • 00:14:16.110 --> 00:14:17.280
  • IT'S NOT JUST TUTORING AND ONE TO ONE INSTRUCTION.
  • 00:14:18.000 --> 00:14:20.170
  • IT'S THE BEST.
  • 00:14:20.190 --> 00:14:21.290
  • HAVING ONE PERSON WHERE YOU'RE TOTALLY IN TUNED WITH
  • 00:14:22.010 --> 00:14:24.100
  • THAT PERSON AND YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHERE THEY'RE AT,
  • 00:14:24.120 --> 00:14:27.090
  • MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE.
  • 00:14:27.110 --> 00:14:28.240
  • THAT ONE ON ONE SITUATION HELPS ME GET INSIDE THEIR WORLD
  • 00:14:28.260 --> 00:14:33.130
  • AND HELPS THEM GET INSIDE MINE.
  • 00:14:33.150 --> 00:14:35.110
  • AND IT REALLY WORKS.
  • 00:14:35.130 --> 00:14:36.170
  • - I APPRECIATE THIS.
  • 00:14:36.190 --> 00:14:38.200
  • THAT'S THE ONE REASON WHY I WANT TO STAY.
  • 00:14:38.220 --> 00:14:40.080
  • - WE ALSO PROVIDE SAT AND ACT TUTORING.
  • 00:14:40.100 --> 00:14:42.220
  • HELPING EVERY STUDENT ON THE SAT AND ACT,
  • 00:14:42.240 --> 00:14:45.090
  • SO THEY'RE PUTTING THEIR COLLEGE PICTURE
  • 00:14:45.110 --> 00:14:46.200
  • TOGETHER THE BEST THEY CAN.
  • 00:14:46.220 --> 00:14:48.190
  • THERE'S NO REASON THAT OUR CHILDREN
  • 00:14:48.210 --> 00:14:49.280
  • SHOULD NOT HAVE ALL THE ADVANTAGES OF CHILDREN
  • 00:14:50.000 --> 00:14:52.090
  • WHO'S PARENTS HAVE ECONOMIC MEANS.
  • 00:14:52.110 --> 00:14:54.120
  • THEY'RE JUST, THERE'S NO REASON.
  • 00:14:54.140 --> 00:14:56.060
  • - [KELLY] ANOTHER LESSON THAT THE SCHOOL HAS LEARNED
  • 00:14:56.080 --> 00:14:58.150
  • IS THAT MANY OF THEIR STUDENTS DON'T HAVE A QUIET PLACE
  • 00:14:58.170 --> 00:15:01.010
  • TO ACTUALLY DO THEIR HOMEWORK.
  • 00:15:01.030 --> 00:15:03.280
  • THE STUDENTS AND TEACHERS MEET EVERY DAY AFTER SCHOOL
  • 00:15:04.000 --> 00:15:07.100
  • IN THE LIBRARY TO GET THEIR HOMEWORK DONE
  • 00:15:07.120 --> 00:15:10.130
  • BEFORE GOING HOME.
  • 00:15:10.150 --> 00:15:12.110
  • - IF YOU'RE STRUGGLING WITH A SUBJECT,
  • 00:15:12.130 --> 00:15:13.240
  • OR MAYBE YOU'RE JUST HOME ENVIRONMENT
  • 00:15:13.260 --> 00:15:15.220
  • ISN'T WELL SUITED FOR YOU TO DO WORK,
  • 00:15:15.240 --> 00:15:18.190
  • IT'S A GREAT ENVIRONMENT HERE TO DO YOUR WORK.
  • 00:15:18.210 --> 00:15:20.230
  • - THE WAY IT WORKS IS STUDENTS ARE FREE TO COME DOWN
  • 00:15:20.250 --> 00:15:23.090
  • AND WORK ON THEIR OWN HOMEWORK
  • 00:15:23.110 --> 00:15:24.230
  • OR THEY CAN COME DOWN AND GET ASSISTANCE FORM A TEACHER
  • 00:15:24.250 --> 00:15:26.260
  • OR A PEER TUTOR THAT IS THERE TO ASSIST THEM.
  • 00:15:26.280 --> 00:15:29.070
  • WE SET THEM UP WITH PEER TUTORS.
  • 00:15:29.090 --> 00:15:30.260
  • WE USUALLY FIND AN AP STUDENT OR AN HONOR STUDENT
  • 00:15:30.280 --> 00:15:35.070
  • AND WE PAIR THEM UP WITH A STUDENT
  • 00:15:35.090 --> 00:15:37.040
  • BASED ON THE SUBJECT MATTER THAT THEY NEED.
  • 00:15:37.060 --> 00:15:39.010
  • - I'VE HAD TEACHERS WHO'VE STAYED TILL 5:00
  • 00:15:39.030 --> 00:15:42.000
  • MULTIPLE DAYS OF THE WEEK JUST TO MAKE SURE
  • 00:15:42.020 --> 00:15:44.060
  • THAT ME AND MY FRIENDS REALLY UNDERSTAND THE TOPIC.
  • 00:15:44.080 --> 00:15:47.200
  • - [KELLY] ABSENTEEISM IS NOT TOLERATED HERE.
  • 00:15:47.220 --> 00:15:50.180
  • IF A STUDENT DOES NOT SHOW UP FOR SCHOOL,
  • 00:15:50.200 --> 00:15:52.200
  • THAT CHILD'S HOME GETS A PHONE CALL, TEXT, EMAIL,
  • 00:15:52.220 --> 00:15:56.290
  • AND AT TIMES EVEN A KNOCK ON THEIR FRONT DOOR.
  • 00:15:57.010 --> 00:16:00.160
  • SCHOOL OFFICIALS WILL EVEN GIVE A STUDENT
  • 00:16:00.180 --> 00:16:03.000
  • A RIDE TO SCHOOL IF NEEDED.
  • 00:16:03.020 --> 00:16:05.280
  • - THERE'S A PHONE CALL HOME, THERE'S TEXT MESSAGES.
  • 00:16:06.000 --> 00:16:08.190
  • WE'VE EVEN SHOWED UP AT STUDENT'S DOORS
  • 00:16:08.210 --> 00:16:10.070
  • AN KNOCK ON THEIR DOORS AND SEE WHERE THEY ARE.
  • 00:16:10.090 --> 00:16:12.010
  • AND WE HAVE STUDENTS ON A SPECIAL WATCH LIST.
  • 00:16:12.030 --> 00:16:15.090
  • - I HAD AROUND 86 ABSENCES IN MY SOPHOMORE YEAR.
  • 00:16:15.110 --> 00:16:19.030
  • I NEVER SHOWED UP BECAUSE I NEVER THOUGHT I WAS GOOD ENOUGH.
  • 00:16:19.050 --> 00:16:21.140
  • - ATTENDANCE OR LACK OF COMING TO SCHOOL
  • 00:16:21.160 --> 00:16:23.010
  • IS A SYMPTOM OF A PROBLEM.
  • 00:16:23.030 --> 00:16:24.200
  • AND IT'S OUR JOB TO FIND OUT WHAT'S CAUSING THE ABSENTEES.
  • 00:16:24.220 --> 00:16:28.150
  • IT DOESN'T TAKE MUCH TO HAVE THOSE CONVERSATIONS
  • 00:16:28.170 --> 00:16:30.030
  • WITH KIDS AND PARENTS AND FAMILIES.
  • 00:16:30.050 --> 00:16:31.270
  • - I'M A SURVIVOR OF ABUSE, COUNTLESS SUICIDE ATTEMPTS,
  • 00:16:31.290 --> 00:16:36.090
  • EXTREME BULLYING, I LOST MY ONE AND ONLY FRIEND TO CANCER.
  • 00:16:36.110 --> 00:16:45.030
  • YEAH, I WAS JUST ALONE FOR MOST OF MY LIFE.
  • 00:16:45.050 --> 00:16:49.210
  • - IT WAS JUST TROUBLE TRYING TO GET HIM HERE.
  • 00:16:49.230 --> 00:16:51.120
  • WHEN YOU'RE DEPRESSED AND YOU FEEL LIKE
  • 00:16:51.140 --> 00:16:52.290
  • YOU DON'T HAVE A PURPOSE,
  • 00:16:53.010 --> 00:16:54.070
  • YOU DON'T WANT TO GET OUT OF BED IN THE MORNING.
  • 00:16:54.090 --> 00:16:55.200
  • - I THINK THE SCHOOL PROBABLY HAD THE GREATEST IMPACT
  • 00:16:55.220 --> 00:16:57.140
  • ON MY LIFE, IF I'M TO BE COMPLETELY HONEST.
  • 00:16:57.160 --> 00:16:59.260
  • I WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO BE THE PERSON I AM TODAY,
  • 00:16:59.280 --> 00:17:03.120
  • I WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO SURVIVE.
  • 00:17:03.140 --> 00:17:04.270
  • I WOULD PROBABLY WOULD NOT EVEN BE HERE RIGHT NOW
  • 00:17:04.290 --> 00:17:06.240
  • IF IT WASN'T FOR THEM.
  • 00:17:06.260 --> 00:17:08.220
  • I DECIDED TO CHANGE MYSELF FOR THE BETTER.
  • 00:17:08.240 --> 00:17:10.190
  • I DECIDED I DON'T WANT TO BE SCARED OF THE MAN
  • 00:17:10.210 --> 00:17:13.100
  • ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE MIRROR.
  • 00:17:13.120 --> 00:17:15.060
  • - [KELLY] WITH CARING EDUCATORS LIKE THIS,
  • 00:17:15.080 --> 00:17:17.270
  • IT IS NOT SURPRISING THESE STUDENTS
  • 00:17:17.290 --> 00:17:19.170
  • GRADUATE HIGH SCHOOL ON TIME.
  • 00:17:19.190 --> 00:17:22.230
  • - HANDS ON GRADUATION, 99% THE PAST TWO, THREE YEARS.
  • 00:17:22.250 --> 00:17:26.260
  • ONE STUDENT HAS NOT GRADUATED, AND THEY GRADUATE IN AUGUST.
  • 00:17:26.280 --> 00:17:29.230
  • - WE STRIVE TO MAKE SURE WE HAVE 100% GRADUATION RATES.
  • 00:17:29.250 --> 00:17:32.270
  • WE SET OUR BAR HIGH.
  • 00:17:32.290 --> 00:17:34.030
  • WE HAVE OUR EXPECTATIONS PRETTY MUCH THAT
  • 00:17:34.050 --> 00:17:36.210
  • THERE IS ACADEMIC RIGOR.
  • 00:17:36.230 --> 00:17:38.140
  • - [KELLY] FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS THAT EXCEL IN LEARNING,
  • 00:17:38.160 --> 00:17:41.090
  • THERE ARE ADVANCE PLACEMENT OR AP CLASSES
  • 00:17:41.110 --> 00:17:44.250
  • THAT THEY CAN TAKE TO BE APPLIED AS COLLEGE CREDITS.
  • 00:17:44.270 --> 00:17:48.060
  • - BY THE TIME I GRADUATE, I WOULD HAVE ACTUALLY
  • 00:17:48.080 --> 00:17:50.020
  • TAKEN 10 AP CLASSES, WHICH ALSO EARN ME COLLEGE CREDIT,
  • 00:17:50.040 --> 00:17:53.220
  • DEPENDING ON WHERE I CHOOSE TO GO TO COLLEGE.
  • 00:17:53.240 --> 00:17:55.230
  • I HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO ENTER AS A SOPHOMORE,
  • 00:17:55.250 --> 00:17:58.100
  • WHICH IS A REALLY GREAT THING BECAUSE
  • 00:17:58.120 --> 00:18:01.030
  • NOT ONLY WILL THAT SAVE ME MONEY,
  • 00:18:01.050 --> 00:18:02.210
  • BUT IT WILL ALSO GIVE ME THE OPPORTUNITY TO START
  • 00:18:02.230 --> 00:18:04.230
  • DOING WHAT I WANT SOONER.
  • 00:18:04.250 --> 00:18:07.140
  • - [VINCENT] MY HOPE FOR STUDENTS, TO GO
  • 00:18:07.160 --> 00:18:09.240
  • I WANT THEM TO BE ABLE TO DREAM.
  • 00:18:09.260 --> 00:18:11.080
  • I WANT THEM TO FEEL LIKE THEY CAN PURSUE THOSE DREAMS.
  • 00:18:11.100 --> 00:18:13.110
  • - I WANT TO GRADUATE ON TIME.

  • ONCE I GRADUATE.
  • 00:18:17.060 --> 00:18:18.000
  • I WANT TO BE AN FBI AGENT.
  • 00:18:18.020 --> 00:18:20.080
  • I WANT TO BE A FBI AGENT OR A POLICE OFFICER,
  • 00:18:20.100 --> 00:18:23.010
  • ONE OF THOSE TWO.
  • 00:18:23.030 --> 00:18:24.090
  • - AFTER GRADUATION I WANT TO BE A PSYCHOLOGIST.
  • 00:18:24.110 --> 00:18:28.040
  • I JUST WANT TO BE POSITIVE.
  • 00:18:28.060 --> 00:18:29.110
  • I JUST WANT TO SPREAD A POSITIVE MESSAGE.
  • 00:18:29.130 --> 00:18:30.180
  • - I DEFINITELY WANT TO GO INTO MEDICINE.
  • 00:18:30.200 --> 00:18:33.050
  • I WAS DEFINITELY GEARED TOWARDS BECOMING A DOCTOR,
  • 00:18:33.070 --> 00:18:37.050
  • BUT NOW I'M MORE INTERESTED IN EXPLORING DIFFERENT FIELDS
  • 00:18:37.070 --> 00:18:40.060
  • IN MEDICINE AND HEALTH CARE.
  • 00:18:40.080 --> 00:18:41.260
  • - I HAVE A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF HOPE.
  • 00:18:41.280 --> 00:18:43.120
  • AND I KNOW THESE KIDS CAN DO IT.
  • 00:18:43.140 --> 00:18:44.210
  • THEY'VE PROVEN IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN.
  • 00:18:44.230 --> 00:18:46.080
  • - PUBLIC HEALTH IS EMPOWERING OUR SCHOOL SYSTEMS
  • 00:18:46.100 --> 00:18:49.170
  • TO BE MORE CARING AND EFFECTIVE IN HELPING STUDENTS
  • 00:18:49.190 --> 00:18:52.290
  • GRADUATE ON TIME AND TO LIVE THEIR LIFE TO ITS FULLEST.
  • 00:18:53.010 --> 00:18:58.140
  • ANOTHER WAY TO ENSURE A HEALTHY SOCIETY
  • 00:18:58.160 --> 00:19:01.070
  • IS TO FOCUS ON OUR PARKS, AIR, AND WATER QUALITY.
  • 00:19:01.090 --> 00:19:06.040
  • AMERICAN PUBLIC HEALTH DEPARTMENTS WORK WITH
  • 00:19:06.060 --> 00:19:08.070
  • LOCAL CITY PLANNERS TO PROVIDE SAFE,
  • 00:19:08.090 --> 00:19:11.080
  • PHYSICAL COMMUNITY ACTIVITIES.
  • 00:19:11.100 --> 00:19:13.220
  • PARKS, WALKING AND BIKING PATHS, AND TRAILS
  • 00:19:13.240 --> 00:19:17.130
  • ENCOURAGE INDIVIDUALS TO GET OUT AND EXERCISE
  • 00:19:17.150 --> 00:19:20.290
  • WHILE ALSO CREATING A COMMUNITY OF LIKE MINDED PEOPLE.
  • 00:19:21.010 --> 00:19:25.010
  • - I'M PASSIONATE ABOUT THE OUTDOORS,
  • 00:19:25.030 --> 00:19:26.090
  • AND I'M PASSIONATE ABOUT PROVIDING A PLACE
  • 00:19:26.110 --> 00:19:28.170
  • FOR FAMILIES TO RECREATE AND FOR PEOPLE
  • 00:19:28.190 --> 00:19:31.190
  • TO HAVE A SAFE PLACE TO COME TO ENJOY THE OUTDOORS.
  • 00:19:31.210 --> 00:19:35.180
  • - PARKS LIKE THIS ARE SO IMPORTANT TO MY FAMILY
  • 00:19:35.200 --> 00:19:38.030
  • BECAUSE I GREW UP IN THE MIDWEST AND WE WERE OUTSIDE
  • 00:19:38.050 --> 00:19:40.170
  • PLAYING IN THE DIRT, RUNNING AROUND EVERY DAY.
  • 00:19:40.190 --> 00:19:43.240
  • I HAVE TWO DAUGHTERS NOW THAT ARE CITY GIRLS.
  • 00:19:43.260 --> 00:19:46.020
  • SO I TRY TO GET THEM AS OUTSIDE AS MUCH AS I CAN
  • 00:19:46.040 --> 00:19:49.040
  • TO EXPERIENCE THE NATURE.
  • 00:19:49.060 --> 00:19:51.070
  • IT'S SO IMPORTANT FOR KIDS TO GET OUTSIDE,
  • 00:19:51.090 --> 00:19:53.200
  • AWAY FROM TV, AWAY FROM SCREENS,
  • 00:19:53.220 --> 00:19:56.040
  • AND JUST RUN AROUND OUTSIDE.
  • 00:19:56.060 --> 00:19:58.230
  • - WE LOVE THE OPEN SPACE, THE SOUNDS OF WATER RUNNING,
  • 00:19:58.250 --> 00:20:02.220
  • AND ALL THE TRAILS THAT WE CAN WALK AND BIKE ON.
  • 00:20:02.240 --> 00:20:06.060
  • - OUR LOCAL RESIDENTS, MANY OF THEM UTILIZE
  • 00:20:06.080 --> 00:20:08.160
  • OUR COMMUNITY GARDENS.
  • 00:20:08.180 --> 00:20:10.000
  • A LOT OF THE PEOPLE THAT LIVE IN THE HOUSES
  • 00:20:10.020 --> 00:20:11.290
  • SURROUNDING THIS CANYON ARE CONSTITUENTS WITH US.
  • 00:20:12.010 --> 00:20:15.100
  • THEY KNOW ABOUT THIS CANYON.
  • 00:20:15.120 --> 00:20:16.200
  • THEY LOVE THAT THE RESOURCES ARE HERE.
  • 00:20:16.220 --> 00:20:18.080
  • THEY'RE SO GRATEFUL THAT IT WAS SET ASIDE
  • 00:20:18.100 --> 00:20:20.160
  • AS A PUBLIC PLACE.
  • 00:20:20.180 --> 00:20:22.240
  • PARKS ARE REALLY IMPORTANT TO THE OVERALL COMMUNITY
  • 00:20:22.260 --> 00:20:25.180
  • BECAUSE WE PROVIDE OUTDOOR RECREATION OPPORTUNITIES
  • 00:20:25.200 --> 00:20:30.100
  • THAT HELP WITH OUR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY,
  • 00:20:30.120 --> 00:20:32.060
  • OUR SENSE OF WELL BEING FROM TIME SPENT IN NATURE.
  • 00:20:32.080 --> 00:20:35.010
  • - THE PARK HELPS THE COMMUNITY STAY HEALTHY
  • 00:20:35.030 --> 00:20:37.010
  • BY THE TRAILS, WALKING THE TRAILS, BIKE RIDING OUT HERE.
  • 00:20:37.030 --> 00:20:42.090
  • - HAVING ACCESS TO THE THINGS THAT EVERYBODY NEEDS.
  • 00:20:42.110 --> 00:20:45.050
  • FRESH, CLEAN WATER, OUTDOOR RECREATION OPPORTUNITIES,
  • 00:20:45.070 --> 00:20:48.210
  • CLEAN AIR, HEALTHY ENVIRONMENTS, AND HEALTHY COMMUNITIES.
  • 00:20:48.230 --> 00:20:53.030
  • - [KELLY] THE FLINT MICHIGAN LEAD WATER CRISIS
  • 00:20:53.050 --> 00:20:55.220
  • REMINDS ALL OF US THE NEED FOR
  • 00:20:55.240 --> 00:20:58.000
  • CLEAN, DRINKABLE WATER SYSTEMS.
  • 00:20:58.020 --> 00:21:00.150
  • A RECENT REPORT STATES THAT 63 MILLION PEOPLE
  • 00:21:00.170 --> 00:21:03.160
  • ACROSS AMERICA WERE EXPOSED TO UNSAFE WATER
  • 00:21:03.180 --> 00:21:06.290
  • MORE THAN ONCE IN THE LAST DECADE.
  • 00:21:07.010 --> 00:21:10.040
  • PUBLIC PARKS WITH WATER RESERVOIRS HELP
  • 00:21:10.060 --> 00:21:13.240
  • WHILE PROVIDING THE BENEFIT OF RECREATION.
  • 00:21:13.260 --> 00:21:16.230
  • - THIS LAKE ITSELF RELIES SOLELY ON
  • 00:21:16.250 --> 00:21:19.260
  • TWO NATURAL CREEKS THAT FEED THIS LAKE.
  • 00:21:19.280 --> 00:21:21.230
  • AND THIS LAKE FEEDS RESERVOIRS TO THE WEST OF US.
  • 00:21:21.250 --> 00:21:25.000
  • ANYTIME THE CITY WHO OWNS THE WATER RIGHTS
  • 00:21:25.020 --> 00:21:27.080
  • CAN LET THAT WATER DOWN TO THE OTHER RESERVOIRS
  • 00:21:27.100 --> 00:21:30.170
  • TO THE WEST OF US AND ALLOW THIS ONE
  • 00:21:30.190 --> 00:21:32.080
  • TO FILL UP FROM RAIN WATER AND RUNOFF
  • 00:21:32.100 --> 00:21:34.060
  • FROM OUR MOUNTAIN RANGE.
  • 00:21:34.080 --> 00:21:36.080
  • - CLEAN, DRINKABLE WATER IS A HUGE PRIORITY
  • 00:21:36.100 --> 00:21:39.120
  • TO THE COMMUNITY AND TO THE PARK.
  • 00:21:39.140 --> 00:21:41.180
  • I WANT MY KIDS TO SEE HOW IMPORTANT IT IS
  • 00:21:41.200 --> 00:21:43.210
  • TO TAKE CARE OF THE WATER AND TO CONSERVE
  • 00:21:43.230 --> 00:21:46.000
  • AND THIS IS WHAT WE NEED TO DO TO TAKE CARE OF OUR EARTH.
  • 00:21:46.020 --> 00:21:50.270
  • - SO IT IS AN ACTIVE RESERVOIR,
  • 00:21:50.290 --> 00:21:52.070
  • SO FOR THAT REASON THERE IS NO LAKE CONTACT
  • 00:21:52.090 --> 00:21:55.010
  • FOR PEOPLE OR ANIMALS.
  • 00:21:55.030 --> 00:21:56.130
  • SO YOU CAN LAUNCH YOUR OWN BOATS,
  • 00:21:56.150 --> 00:21:58.010
  • WHICH GIVES YOU AN OPPORTUNITY TO COME OUT,
  • 00:21:58.030 --> 00:21:59.100
  • GET OUT ON THE WATER OR JUST FISH FROM THE SHORE.
  • 00:21:59.120 --> 00:22:02.190
  • - [KELLY] CLEAN WATER ALSO HELPS GROW TREES AND PLANTS
  • 00:22:02.210 --> 00:22:06.000
  • IN OUR COMMUNITY PARKS.
  • 00:22:06.020 --> 00:22:08.040
  • THIS IS A HUGE BENEFIT TO THE AIR QUALITY.
  • 00:22:08.060 --> 00:22:12.020
  • HEAT FROM THE EARTH IS TRAPPED IN THE ATMOSPHERE
  • 00:22:12.040 --> 00:22:14.140
  • DUE TO HIGH LEVELS OF CARBON DIOXIDE.
  • 00:22:14.160 --> 00:22:17.140
  • TREES ACT AS CARBON SINKS,
  • 00:22:17.160 --> 00:22:20.110
  • ALLEVIATING THE GREENHOUSE EFFECT.
  • 00:22:20.130 --> 00:22:23.130
  • COMMUNITY PARKS TREE PLANTING INITIATIVES
  • 00:22:23.150 --> 00:22:25.250
  • THAT GROW MORE TREES HELP IN A VERY BIG WAY.
  • 00:22:25.270 --> 00:22:30.000
  • WE HAVE AN ARTESIAN SPRING WHERE WATER HAS
  • 00:22:30.020 --> 00:22:32.260
  • JUST BEEN BUBBLING UP OUT OF THE GROUND
  • 00:22:32.280 --> 00:22:34.290
  • FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS.
  • 00:22:35.010 --> 00:22:36.110
  • WE STILL USE THAT SPRING WATER FROM OUR ARTESIAN SPRING
  • 00:22:36.130 --> 00:22:40.170
  • TO WATER OUR ORCHARD AS WELL AS 150 TREES
  • 00:22:40.190 --> 00:22:44.200
  • THAT WE PLANTED RECENTLY AS PART OF THAT
  • 00:22:44.220 --> 00:22:46.250
  • TREE PLANTING INITIATIVE.
  • 00:22:46.270 --> 00:22:49.000
  • WE WOULD LIKE TO PLANT TREES AT A THREE TO ONE RATIO,
  • 00:22:49.020 --> 00:22:53.010
  • SO EVERY ONE TREE THAT WE LOSE DUE TO DROUGHT OR BEETLES
  • 00:22:53.030 --> 00:22:57.190
  • OR PESTS, WE WOULD REPLACE THAT WITH THREE TREES.
  • 00:22:57.210 --> 00:23:01.130
  • AND THEY'RE A PART OF WHAT HELPS PROVIDE US
  • 00:23:01.150 --> 00:23:03.160
  • WITH THE CLEAN AIR RESOURCES THAT WE HAVE HERE.
  • 00:23:03.180 --> 00:23:05.180
  • - THE PARK SITS AT ABOUT 3100 FEET ELEVATION.
  • 00:23:05.200 --> 00:23:08.280
  • WHEN YOU GET UP IN THIS KIND OF ELEVATION,
  • 00:23:09.000 --> 00:23:10.290
  • AND WITH ALL THESE BEAUTIFUL TREES LIKE THE OAKS
  • 00:23:11.010 --> 00:23:13.060
  • AND EVERYTHING, IT REALLY GIVES YOU THAT MOUNTAIN FRESH AIR.
  • 00:23:13.080 --> 00:23:16.040
  • WHEN YOU'RE UP HERE, YOU'RE NOT IN THE CITY POLLUTION,
  • 00:23:16.060 --> 00:23:18.080
  • ALL THE SMOG AND VEHICLES, THINGS LIKE THAT.
  • 00:23:18.100 --> 00:23:20.230
  • YOU'RE REALLY UP HERE AND YOU'RE JUST BREATHING
  • 00:23:20.250 --> 00:23:22.060
  • ALL THAT FRESH AIR AND IT'S JUST WONDERFUL.
