Group Delivers Message to Youth Correctional Facility

Young men trying to turn their lives around heard a message of hope Friday morning.

The Bill Glass Champions for Life Tour visit at the Kansas Juvenile Correctional Facility.

The Christian ministry founded by the former NFL star uses volunteers to spread a message of faith and hope to people in prisons.

KJCC Deputy Superintendent David Arnold says bringing in groups like Glass' is another way to show the young men people care. He says staff are around them every day and it's their job to instruct the residents, but volunteers don't have to be there, so when they come in, the young men have a true appreciation for the effort.

More than 30 volunteers with the Champions for Life organization will spend two days in group and individual sessions with the residents.

They made quite an entrance - riding into the facility's gymnasium on a couple of Harleys for the Friday morning opening session.
