bringing real help
and self-respect to at-risk youth
ISAAC ASBERRY and THE WAY TO HAPPINESS:
Isaac and the Teen Intervention Program work with teens who are either on drugs, in gangs or have a problem in school. Isaac Asberry is from the city of Compton, born and raised. He worked for the federal Department of Justice for for thirty years. He started the Teen Intervention Program in 2007. The city of Compton is known throughout the world as where gangs originated from. Isaac says, "In this environment, to the young gang members, it's an honor and a privilege to murder someone with no significant reason why. They teach them at a very young age 'it's okay to murder.' Compton is known worldwide. So I chose Compton to make a difference." This the story of how Isaac and concerned members of the community made and are making a real difference, using The Way to Happiness.
