Public Private Ventures is a national nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve the effectiveness of social policies, programs and community initiatives, especially as they affect youth and young adults. Their entire collection of social policy research publications are available for free on their website. Leaving the Street: Young Fathers Move from Hustling to Legitimate Work is particularly compelling; the title says it all, really.

I havent't looked at all the links, but where I come from, Private Public Ventures (or Parteneriat Public/Privé) is usually shorthand for Public takes risks and Pirvate reaps benefit...

Ok, looks like I'm wrong. Seems like a worth while initiative (but still looking for wolf in sheep clothing...)

You get to pay taxes. That allows the public half of the program to keep running!

"legitmate work" is what they call doing things for cash that won't put you in jail. now the next question--why do we put so many productive workers in jail--I have no answer to.

Probably has something to do with slavery, so I hear.
