Hear Here: Jeannette King-Harris wants to turn her neighborhood around

Jeannette King-Harris grew up in Oakland and says she’s tired of all the difficulties young people face there today. So, she’s launching an organization called Planting Special Seeds to change that. It’s a youth empowerment program that offers job training, educational advising, and emotional support to young people from around Oakland.

King-Harris shared her inspiration with KALW’s Hear Here Community storytelling project. Click the audio player above to listen to the story.
