Off the Streets and Giving Back

Jimmy Battle grew up in foster care. He made some bad choices, sold drugs and spent time in prison. But with the help of a D.C. non-profit and the guidance of a mentor he was able to turn his life around. Now he returns the favor. He mentors young men who are "struggling" in the community and he shares with them what he has learned. Jimmy leads by example, showing young men that they have more choices than they might realize and that they must have discipline in the face of adversity.
