Journal of activities:
Great meeting with leaders in San Jose and Santa Clara County about introducing our Straight-A Guide life skills program for people in prison and the formerly incarcerated. I met with Mario Maciel, who leads the mayor’s gang task force, with representatives from the Board of Supervisors, from Santa Clara County Probation, and from Santa Clara County Reentry Services. We’re going to develop a working relationship where facilitators from those institutions begin using our Straight-A Guide character building program to help others prepare for law-abiding, contributing lives. In order to make it to the meeting on time, I left my home at 5:30 am. Before and after the meeting I set up shop with laptop computer at a Peet’s Coffee. Then I ate a wonderful dinner at Morton’s in San Jose. I didn’t return home until 9:30 in the evening. A productive day that will result in the growth of our life-skills, character-building program.
