The most common theme of this program has been the contrast between the hopes and hopelessness that these westside teenagers have confided in Studs for use of the program. Now installment number five of this six part series features Studs’ interview with three very important adults. Director of Chicago Youth Development Hans Mattick, his associate Earl Dotty, and their project manager John Ray. Together they discuss the elements that hinder these inner city kids from finding meaning in their existences, the techniques that they use to mentor them, and how the youth of the inner city is not all that different from kids in suburban or middle America.
