P.R.I.M.E. Program Can Make an Impact
The San Bernardino County Prevention, Resource, Intervention, Mentoring, Education (P.R.I.M.E.) Program is a grass roots non-profit organization dedicated to serving high risk, low income, probation, and foster child or ward of court youth and young adults in our community. There is no other program like P.R.I.M.E. in our community.
According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, over half of all adolescents are living at risk whether it be from poverty, absent parents, substance abuse, physical and or emotional abuse. Over 21.6% of youth in San Bernardino County live in poverty and over 23% ages 16-19 were not in school and half of those were unemployed.
Just think... these are just some of the statistics in one county.
It is time for someone to take a stand for our future workers, businesspersons, and leaders of America.
