Brewing up Change

Record #:
A need for reducing the city’s crime rate inspired twelve former gang members to establish two business initiatives. The first, Tru Colors Brewing, requires employees to stay in their gangs for the purpose of being positive role models. The second initiative is a three week apprenticeship that includes life skills training. Proof of the program’s success can be seen in seven apprentices who have attained employment at Wilmington area construction companies.
