Speaker: Rev. Dave Farrington
Reminded of an old friend and colleague by the same name as our ill guest speaker, Rev. Dave will give a sermon entitled “Project Youth” of which Art Devlin and his co-defendant were co-creators. Project Youth became a model by which incarcerated felons spent time with youngsters who had criminal charges pending. It was a success heralded by judges in Boston, then all of Massachusetts and ultimately the country and the world. “Scared Straight” was a highly corrupted copy that became more widely known than the original program. The sermon will include a comparison of Project Youth with Scared Straight.
