We have lost the ma and pa grocery stores. These institutions were the foundations that started young people to believe in themselves. If kids can see people in their neighborhoods who look like them conduct business, then they could have confidence in a goal for their future. Daily encounters with people that understand and have been through some of the experiences that you come from enable you to want to make the plans necessary to achieve.
