After reading "Back on track" in the Aug. 22 issue, I just wanted to commend these young adults for making the great decisions to take charge of their lives. I wish you all the best of luck in your future endeavors!
As a longtime resident of SLO County, I was led to believe that the Grizzly Academy was for juvenile offenders, kids sent here through probation obligations or to avoid going into the juvenile corrections services. I am just curious to know if the academy is indeed available to these at-risk youth, or if it ever was?
I find it amazing that this group signed themselves up for this—I am just hoping that those who need the push are getting it. I hope so, our future generations are depending on it! Thank you Grizzly, your work is meaningful!
