ELITE Design Graduation

Carl Cannon spoke with WMBD News about the ELITE Design program and the important role that “Street Fathers” play within the program.

Carl said “Since January of 2018 there are 14 unsolved murders in the city of Peoria of young black men. A 4-year-old would be included in those unsolved murders. If we don’t do something early, we’re burying them later.
If they didn’t have a family, they do now. They have an extended family. Someone on the right or the left who will whisper the right things in their ears instead of some of the negatives that they might’ve been attached to prior to this concept.”
