Leonardo's Journey: From Crime To Café Momentum [VIDEO]
Meet Leonardo Alvarez, who spent much of his youth, as he puts it, “dealing dope.” That landed him in Dallas’ Youth Village juvenile detention center. He’s been through the Café Momentum program, which teaches young men how to work in restaurants.
In this video Leonardo talks about his girlfriend’s pregnancy, his legal stumbles and his struggle to stay on the straight and narrow.
Reporter Jacqueline Fellows spent an evening at one of Cafe Momentum's "pop-up dinners." Take a listen to her KERA News report.
