Meet the former prisoner holding youth mentoring sessions across France
Issued on: Modified:
In this episode of Banlieue Project, we meet Yazid. Once a petty criminal, an elected official's decision to give him a second chance encouraged him to turn his life around. Yazid now parks his truck outside underprivileged housing projects across France to conduct youth mentoring sessions. He tells us more.
Banlieue Project is a platform for residents of France's disadvantaged suburbs to tell their own stories. We provide the camera and they film their experiences to break down clichés about the French "banlieues".
