PRO BONO/GIVING BACK TIME! Simone Williams accompanies Senator Pearnel Charles Jr. to Youth Detentio
On December 23, 2017, Simone Williams, Managing Attorney with Williams Global Law, visited the Metcalfe Street Juvenile Remand Centre in Kingston, Jamaica with Senator Pearnel Charles Jr., the junior minister in the Ministry of National Security of Jamaica.
The goal of the visit was to share the message of forgiveness, giving and peace with the detainees, and to encourage them to make a positive change in their lives. The Metcalfe Street Centre is the only rehabilitation centre for young men in Kingston.
Senator Charles led the discussion to the youth, along with Chris Dehring, CEO Ready TV; Peter Melhado, CEO ICD Group Limited; and entertainer Jeffery Campbell, better known as Agent Sasco, who is also youth ambassador of the We Transform Programme.
Senator Charles, Agent Sasco, Chris Dehring and Peter Melhado presented Christmas gifts to the center, such as a LED television and PlayStation Four, which can only be used by young detainees who display exemplary behavior.
