Against All Odds – A Dear Self Story
With the influx of gang related incidents and violence in Thunder Bay it has become very apparent that steps need to be taken to help ensure the safety of our community members. As a result, a collaborative approach was taken to help support individuals in our community that are at greatest risk of being victimized or impacted by gang activity. Awareness and education on the realities of what is going on in the community, the outlining risk factors and protective factors as well as signs to look out for will help students, educators, parents and community members work together to build a healthier community.
Kyle’s relationship with drugs lead him into a lifestyle that you see promoted as “cool” in movies, only to find out it left him with nothing but the clothes on his back and a long road home. His story is called “Against all Odd” because his journey to get him to where he is today is unbelievable.
The Thunder Bay Police would like to thanks Kyle for taking a risk with us and sharing his life story. The impact in the community has been outstanding and will help to change lives.
