Join me as I interview Jenny Hawkes, the Executive Director of the non-profit My Brother’s Workshop, and gain thoughtful insight on helping transform at risk youth by shocking their inner potential. We explore the difficulties and hardships facing these youth and delve into how the organization provides the tools, guidance, and mentoring on an individual level that is necessary for their success.
Jenny believes that in order to be successful in society, these youth need to have a stable, safe, and nurturing environment in which to learn and grow their talents. My Brother’s Workshop provides that stability and guidance. Currently, the organization runs a Cafe and Bakery where students learn culinary and customer service skills as well as a number of other workshops that provide training in trades such as plumbing, carpentry, masonry, welding and a host of other essential trades needed in society today.
