Join us May 20, 2017 from 6:30 – 9:30 p.m. at Qualcomm Hall in Sorrento Valley as Second Chance reprises its popular themed event with Orange is the New Black Season 2: Teens Behind Bars.

Teens Behind Bars features keynote speaker Mitchell S. Jackson. Jackson, an acclaimed author and filmmaker, grew up in Northeast Portland during the crime-addled 1990s, and at age 19 he found himself in prison. His debut novel, The Residue Years, has already been made into a feature film. A true survivor with a powerful gift for words, Jackson now teaches writing at NYU and Columbia. Also appearing will be motivational speaker and "rapping dad" Derek Clark, inspiring author of Never Limit Your Life and the critically acclaimed series I Will Never Give Up.

This year Second Chance will present stories about local justice-involved youth and the impactful Second Chance programs that help them overcome neglect, abuse, addiction and other generational barriers to achieving self-sufficiency and avoiding adult prison.

General admission tickets include pre-event dinner in the International Food Court, a photo exhibit by “photographer for social change” Michele Zousmer, entertainment and a no-host bar. VIP Reception tickets with a chance to meet our special guests are also available.

If you are unable to attend, we hope you will “Sponsor a Youth” to enjoy this special evening.

Proceeds from the event will enable Second Chance to continue its ongoing work to support youth and adults who are working toward self-sufficiency and a positive future. All money raised at the benefit will help provide stable, year-round funding for development programs for disadvantaged youth, job readiness training, job placement services, sober-living housing and behavioral health treatment.
