Wisdom Behind the Walls
Wisdom Behind the Walls is a project of Save the Kids. Save the Kids believe that some of the best people youth can talk to about staying away from gangs, drugs, violence, police, and prison are those that have gone through all of that. The problem is those individuals are locked up and those that have gotten out of prison are not often allowed to go into detention facilities to speak to youth. So we have circumvented the problem by creating this unique and important project. Wisdom Behind the Walls is the posting of positive social justice peacemaking stories, poems, articles, and other writings by adult prisoners to youth on this website. The writings are not directed to any specific youth, but youth that are caught in the system or targets of the system.
Wisdom Behind the Walls are the words and stories of real people suffering and transforming in prison. These are their words of wisdom to you. We at Save the Kids support these prisoners for their desire and commitment to work with youth with similar backgrounds and experiences.
Wisdom Behind the Walls is a project led by former and current prisoners.
As youth, the system is against us. For some of us more so than others. But, we can beat the system. We can keep kids from the walls of incarceration. On with the knowledge!! We are reading!
