‘Pastor Young’ flew into Philadelphia a few days ago for a show but arrived in the city early to make a stop to speak to the kids at Philly’s Juvenile Justice Services Center, the only secure detention center in the city.
Details about Jeezy’s visit + photos below…
Jeezy spoke his words of wisdom to kids, aged 13-20, who are there due to alleged felonies or deemed to be a serious risk to the safety of the community.
Taking his role as voice of the people seriously, Jeezy took time out to offer words of encouragement to the kids. His talk focused on taking responsibility for their actions and making a decision to do better.
Jeezy motivated the kids by letting them know he was just like them, and they could make a change for themselves…. ‘the sky is the limit!‘.
Salute to Young Jeezy for spreading ‘Church in these Streets’ and spreading wisdom to teens who have lost their way.
