Teens Ask For Job To Stay Out Of Gangs, Get Hired On Spot

A group of teams showed up at the door of Zsa Zsa Heard, asking for a job. Heard is the CEO of Legrange Housing Authority. When Heard asked them why they wanted a job, they told her that they wanted a job to help them stay out of gangs.

Heard posted the following message on Facebook on July 27:

I want Facebook to empower these young men they walked into my office today and asked for a job. I said why do you want a job? They said so we want get in trouble and we do not want to be in a gang! I said have people approached you about being in a gang they said yes’mam! I hired them on the spot! The streets will not have our children!

“Several of their teachers (Facebook) inboxed me and told me what good kids they were,” Heard told WXIA, “They said if you give them the support they need, they are going to be successful.”

“If they feel that they’re valuable, and if we show them how important they are, then we don’t risk losing them,” Heard told WXIA. “I don’t want them to seek the love and attention from the negative. I want them to find their value in other things.”

The teens go back to school August 10th, but they are being entered into a teen leadership and mentorship program, which will stay through them throughout the year.

By helping the teens to stay out of gangs, Zsa Zsa Heard could be saving their lives and the lives of other people. Our hats are off to these teens for resisting the calls of gangbangers, and instead working to do something positive. Sometimes all it takes it a helping hand.

    The caption under the picture of the four young men reads “fired” instead of “hired.” Sighhhh.
