This story is about David Henry, a Youth Re-Engagement student. For more on that program, click here.

Youth Re-Engagement has given David Henry an outlet for his artwork. He joined his high school yearbook and trained his photo skills before coming to EvCC. “There are no wrong answers in art,” he said.

Henry works in all areas of fine arts, be it painting and drawing, photography or sculpting. Henry said that the Youth Re-Engagement program was the biggest help he ever received.

When asked about the funding for Youth Re-Engagement, Henry said that kids who don’t have the parental support or come from sometimes need an extra leg up.

However, when Henry tells other students that he’s from Youth Re-Engagement, it’s like “avoiding eye contact with a homeless person.” Henry is adamant that it’s not a handout for people who have made bad choices. Instead, it gives people who have been in adverse situations another chance.
