Homeboy Industries

Homeboy Industries, the largest organization with living evidence of effective gang intervention in America, was started by Father Greg Boyle, a Jesuit Priest who wanted to begin his career in the poorest neighborhood in Los Angeles. The organization has since moved from Delores Mission in Boyle Heights to downtown Los Angeles, near Chinatown.

homeboyindustry | Los Angeles Juvenile Probation Camps | Homeboy Industries has become a safe, rehabilitative community where former members of Los Angeles Gangs and recently released incarcerated men, women and teens from Los Angeles County Juvenile Probation Camps find acceptance and make effective life changes. It is an exemplary national model for reducing recidivism and producing healthier, productive lives.  The changes which occur create positive ripple effects of compassion which expand into streams of new life for many former members of Los Angeles gangs and those released from jail, prison and Los Angeles County Juvenile Probation Camps. The change can be seen in the depth of their eyes, in the fervor and passion of their speech, and in their renewed purposes and actions, which I observed most recently when I attended a book signing of Tattoos on the Heart, written by Father Greg Boyle.

Do all members of Los Angeles gangs make it at Homeboy Industries?  No. But many who have come through the doors of Homeboy Industries earnestly return to try again, and are accepted as they show a willingness to homeboy t-shirt | Homeboy Industries |change. Former members of Los Angeles gangs find jobs, not jails at Homeboy Industries.  “Jobs not Jails” is the slogan proudly displayed on Homeboy t-shirts, and the organization’s mission statement is “Nothing stops a bullet like a job.”

Homeboy Industries’ services, include tattoo removal, education, counseling, legal services and recovery groups.  They offer solar panel installation and training certification.  Homegirl Cafe | Homeboy Industries There is a Homeboy Farmers’ Market, a Homeboy Grocery, Silk Screening and Embroidery, a gift shop, a Homeboy Bakery and The Homegirl Cafe and Catering is where girls “serve food and not time.”  I have enjoyed a delicious lunch there a few times.  Now even Homeboy Chips and Salsa can be purchased at Ralph’s grocery stores.

HOW I FIRST LEARNED ABOUT HOMEBOY INDUSTRIES

Father Greg and the HomeboysAs a pre-graduate school practicum in the ‘90s for a school psychology specialization, I was assigned to read Father Greg and the Homeboys, by Celeste Fremon, while volunteering to work with young members of Los Angeles gangs, wannabes and incarcerated boys at one of the Los Angeles County Probation Camps then called Camp Karl Holton.  Educational services were provided at the probation camp by Los Angeles County Office of Education. The chance to volunteer  and work one on one with these incarcerated boys was an honor and a privilege, and as a single mom of two elementary school daughters while also attending college and living in one room, I served without pay.  Once a week, I met with the head of my school psychology department, Dr. Joe Morris, and shared my notes from readings of Father Greg and the Homeboys about various Los Angeles gangs and the stories of their lives, and we discussed insights or experiences I’d gained as I listened to the stories of the incarcerated boys while walking the track with them or when taking a break from helping them struggle through reading or math work.

Each boy freely shared multiply complex stories, struggles, and came from varied social-cultural and economic backgrounds, but most of them lived well below the poverty level. Some made dishonorable, impulsive or unduly influenced choices perhaps for survival, escape, sensation seeking, or due to unmet needs, impoverished environments, poor role models and other reasons. They all craved a sense of belonging. Many suffered from addictions and had family members or parents still living in “the system” or had lost their natural parents.

My focus, however, was to help the incarcerated boys find strategies to deal with their learning and social-emotional problems, which required a lot of attentive listening, strategies and encouragement. I saw their value and mirrored affirmative respect for progress as we discussed better ways of coping and making choices. I was happy to just be one member of a supportive village of people who helped these boys overcome obstacles to learning and life.

Flash forward, after interning at higher socioeconomic Malibu Schools as well as with less English proficient children of poor migrant workers near the strawberry fields in Oxnard, California, my heart never forgot the stories from Father Greg and the Homeboys, and the rapport I’d build with the boys at Camp Karl Holton, who were already or on their way to becoming “caught up” in the lifestyle of Los Angeles gangs.  There was a deep stirring and sense of purpose inside that compelled me to work with these kids.

So, after graduating with a master’s degree and credential in School Psychology, my heart’s desire was to work for Los Angeles County Office of Education, where I could help the “wanna bes” or already entrenched Los Angeles gang members to help them find more self value, deal with learning problems, and to ensure that their disabilities were appropriately supported with special education services. Los Angeles County Office of Education, however, only had openings in the Division of Special Education, where I worked for two years with children who were severely emotionally disturbed, intellectually disabled and autistic. Then I transferred to the Division of Juvenile Court Schools, (now Division of Student Programs), and ended up at Challenger Memorial Youth Center for about 10 years as a school psychologist.

Challenger, for many years, had the best special education program in the juvenile system and the largest caseloads compared to peers across the county, so I learned to work with efficiency, while still covering all the bases.  Major political changes began to occur starting in 2006. By 2008, darker clouds rolled in, which darkened further in the summer of 2009. Suddenly pot smoke wafted through classrooms, and kids were found with water bottles filled with vodka. Dangerous blood shed, drug use by minors and ongoing political stench created what appeared to be a perfect storm followed by numerous bad press releases. This wasn’t the Challenger I’d known for 10 years.

Out of the blue, authorities changed the regimented head call procedure and allowed the boys to go to the bathroom “at will,” creating mischief all day long as students disrupted learning constantly to go meet and pass drugs. I observed this in sharp contradistinction to my prior years of experience at Challenger Memorial Youth Center in Lancaster, California.

A student came to me pleading for help for a methamphetamine addiction because it was “available like candy” at his camp and he had “traded meals for it.”  He reported that numerous drugs were available in the dorm and he could not get away from them.

Unable fight a war on drugs, the overall outrageous defiance, bloodshed, harm to staff and the sudden barrage of negative newspaper articles, I conducted a needs assessment to see what kids were interested in getting help. The response was high, and so I started an after school group, inviting volunteer speakers from the community. The sudden barrage of problems at Challenger Memorial Youth Center prompted me to begin a Relapse Prevention Program and to thereafter seek assistance from community non-profit organizations.

Homeboy Industries | Challenger Memorial Youth Center | Challenger AlumniI had read Celeste Fremon’s next book entitled G-Dog and the Homeboys, the sequel to her first book, Father Greg and the Homeboys, and enjoyed the epilogue at the end which gave a 15 year longitudinal follow-up about some of the boys she had followed since her original book, showing what worked for gang intervention and how the stories of these lives evolved, with more then 50% success rates.

After working at Challenger so many years the sudden onset of violence and drug abuse made everything weirdly out of control.  With so many  out of control at Challenger, I visited Homeboy Industries, and met a young man who was running a counseling meeting and just happened to be a Challenger “alumni.” His face lit up as I smiled and asked him if he would come out to one of the six Los Angeles juvenile probation camps at Challenger to talk with some of the incarcerated boys. Having no car, the Homeboy agreed to visit by train a few weeks later, wearing his Homeboy hat and jacket. I happily picked him up at the train station and once at Challenger, the kids listened on the edge of their seats.  They clearly respected and enjoyed the Homeboy’s visit, which was free, costing tax payers nothing, and he was overjoyed for the chance to share his story to Challenger students, especially since he was an alumni and even remembered some of his teachers who were still there.

On future visits, two Homeboy speakers would arrive by train so they wouldn’t have to travel alone, again wearing their Homeboy Industries T-Shirts. It always put a smile on my face to see them get off the train. These efforts were curtailed, however, by Los Angeles County Department of Juvenile Probation after about a year of successful speaking engagements at Challenger classrooms, which were designed to help the incarcerated boys.  One reason given was that “evidence based programs with power point presentations” were needed, to which I responded, “These speakers are living evidence.”

Homeboy Industries visiting the classrooms at Challenger Memorial Youth CenterI will always remember the faces of the boys as they listened to the stories told by the Homeboy Industies volunteers and other visitors who came to share how they overcame their proclivities which always led to incarceration. I believe that the seeds of wisdom planted by the guest speakers will remain, although, sadly, one of the Challenger boys in attendance at those meetings was found shot dead in a field shortly after he was release from the facility. That was a sad, but stark reality that often occurs with these kids. I’ll never forget his wide-eyed attentiveness and respect that he showed for the speakers from Homeboy Industries.  Reports indicate that 75% of youth gang homicides in the state of California occur in Los Angeles County.

Homeboy Industries, the Homegirl Cafe, Homeboy Bakery, the Silk Screening shop and other programs at Homeboy Industries should not only be supported by the Los Angeles County Department of Probation and City of Los Angeles, but by citizens across the country. Miracles happen there and lives are changed. I urge you to donate to Homeboy Industries to help their work to continue.

And if you love gala fund raiser events, Homeboy Industries celebrates its 25th Anniversary at Lo Maximo on April 27th, 2013.

News Update:  At LAX, Homeboy Bakery just opened in Terminal 4! Be sure to visit for an assortment of freshly made bagels, baked goods, pastries, and deli sandwiches. Homeboy Bakery is among many social enterprises run by Father Greg Boyle, founder of the Homeboy Industries, a nonprofit outreach organization that gives hard-to-place men, women and teens an opportunity to work in a safe, supportive community while learning soft and concrete jobs skills.

Luanne CrawfordSocial media requires genuine engagement and perhaps a little automation for consistent content distribution. Its meant to be social, as you learn to interact with others and build online relationships with trust. This doesn’t mean you have to spend hours at it, but you do have to check in and learn how to affirm others and share their content.

Eventually you may share others’ content through syndication tribes such as Triberr, TribePro, Onlywire, FriendFeed or Social Monkee, to name a few. There are efficient ways to shorten and schedule your interaction, social media sharing and engagement time.

Social media automation can assist with content distribution and help with development of a strong online presence. While duplication is still viable and necessary in business models, amplification leads to stronger influence and online reach. Amplification through social media can be done in a myriad of ways.

Many business can have a designated social media expert run their social media campaigns and this is a growing field of expertise. New businesses or home businesses, however, may not have the budget to hire a social media expert. Some businesses aren’t even aware of the impact of social media on business.

Those who aren’t using social media, should take the plunge, ready or not, and stay with the process. A Facebook personal page, Facebook Business Page, Twitter, Linked-In and Google Plus, are your first must have social media sites. Many reading this post are already well involved, but if you haven’t set up these basic social media sites, don’t hesitate to do so.

Some social media sharing can be automated, so it works for you while you sleep or are doing other things. It should never be a substitute for social media interaction, however. Social media automation may be used as an adjunct to direct social interaction. It should also not be comprised of all business or selling, but may be interspersed with relevant blog posts, inspirational quotes and genuinely good information that may benefit others.

One of my favorite tools for sharing social media posts which works while I’m away, is a system called Social Oomph. While sitting at “The Grove” in Los Angeles, I recorded a video explaining how I use Social Oomph as one of my social media strategies to engage users.

AdKreator Helps You Make Unique Landing Pages and Banner Ads

by luannecrawford on January 22, 2013

AdKreator Makes Custom Banners, Splash and Squeeze PagesWith AdKreator, you can make your own landing pages, like splash or squeeze pages, and you can even make custom banners of any size.  Easily make landing pages and banners for affiliate products to place on advertising sites, adding your own personalization and custom flair.

I’d joined Adkreator, but did not use it until around the holidays, when someone asked if I would create for them a holiday landing page.  He wanted splash page with a present on it that said “click on the free gift,” leading to a lead capture page with an AWeber web capture form in it, so he could follow up with his leads.  His team really liked the results and originality of the splash page and capture page.

You can make custom landing pages called squeeze pages or capture pages, and add to them some self-branding, too, through pictures or videos.  Its so easy to pop a Youtube embed code into the little box on the squeeze page form, as well as a web capture form from your auto-responder.  Or, take a family photo and place it on your squeeze page to give a sense of who you are.  I’ve found the conversion rates to be higher on custom pages which ad personalization compared to using company affiliate pages which people see over and over again.  It helps people get to know more about you, to like and to trust you.

 

For Banners, its easy to add your photograph on the end of them.  Play around with various fonts, text colors and sized until you achieve the look you desire on your banners.  Sometimes you can shrink images using a resizing tool, and even piece sections of banners together after using a cropping tool.

While I’m fairly new at making YouTube videos, below is a quick video I made showing some of the projects i’d put together with AdKreator over the holidays.  I’ve since made more and each one gets better with each new experience.  If you would like to try AdKreator, click HERE.  You’ll love it!

Tools for Content Marketing, Content Distribution and Lead NurturingTools and services are necessary for content marketing, content distribution and lead nurturing, there’s no getting around it.  There are a myriad of tools and services to assist with content marketing and content distribution.  Some of the available tools are free or low cost, and others require payment or subscriptions in order to use. Lead nurturing may begin when someone clicks a link to find out more, opts into your capture page or sales funnel, and you offer them solutions in a more personally directed way, perhaps through a free e-book or a series of auto-responder emails.  Depending on the situation, a phone call may be warranted.  You may invite them to a webinar, send them an audio link or interact with them on Skype.

One of the best platforms for content marketing is a hosted WordPress blog.  If you are a network marketer and are not yet ready to develop your own blog, there are alternatives.  A popular site with a great Alexa ranking for marketers is IBO Toolbox, where you may construct free “press releases” and if you create good online SEO, you may have a chance of hitting the first page of Google for your keywords.  For that you can use the Google Keyword Tools.  While it is advisable to have your own hosted WordPress blog, there are free blogs sites and others where you pay to blog while selling the service to others to cover your costs and to even turn a profit.  Nevertheless, to attract readers to your content, you must be able to be found in the search engines, or place your content where your target market is most likely to find it.

In addition to blogs, press releases or article marketing, other ways to get the word out about your products is through advertising with banners and text ads, using classified ads in Craigslist and other online publications, using company splash pages or squeeze pages or creating your own squeeze pages.  If you use a splash page, let it lead to a capture page which will give you contact information for your leads so that you can work at lead nurturing, or even better, let your well written, search optimized content lead to a link which directs the reader who wants more information to a squeeze page or lead capture form.

Once you’ve published content, its important to consider your target audience and demographics.  This is where content distribution comes in to play.  Share your own content on social media sites, and have those share buttons available on your blog so that others may follow suit.  Ask your friends, associates and readers for some “TLC” or Tweets, Likes and Comments.  Some sharing tools that I like include TribePro, SocialAdr and SocialMonkee, which are services which help to increase backlinks to your content.  Comment on other blogs with relevant remarks.  If you are placing ads off site from your blog, you may want to use trackers to test the effectiveness of your advertising.

To share queued content to go out to social media sites at specific intervals, I like Social Oomph, which is kind of like having a social media virtual assistant, as it tweets for me on auto-pilot about every 20 minutes.  While some of your social media can include automated posts; however, you have to also be social and interact personally, adding inspiration, value and positive affirmation for people.  When people follow you on Twitter, thank them.  Look among their tweets and find something of interest to retweet for them.  Show good will, and ask questions to create interactions.

Lead nurturing is important for conversions.  Auto-responder email marketing, free E-books, and some personal emails may start the relationship and build a subscriber base.  Depending on the situation, however, when I pick up the phone and call people who have expressed interest, conversion rates have always multiplied  Find out what your prospect is interested in and see how you can be of service.  Be a good listener, and offer step by step solutions as you engage in lead nurturing.

Use Skype and get connected to people who join your programs and offer them assistance via screen sharing if they need help to learn a new skill.  When screen sharing on Skype, you have to be either in call or video mode for it to work.  You cannot screen share on chat as it won’t work. After you develop specific problem solving skill sets with people, make a video about how to solve problems or shorten steps, or conduct a group session on Skype and record it.

These are only a few tools and tips about content marketing, content distribution and lead nurturing.  It requires practice, patience and action.  Its ok to not be perfect.  What matters is that you try, that you move forward, that you continue learning and although you may find times where other things take precedence, don’t give up.  If this post was helpful, please comment and share. (I know the video is out of sync with the audio…. this is called trial and error learning.  As soon as I learn how to fix it, it won’t have to happen again.)

AWeber AutoresponderAWeber is a highly favored autoresponder by marketers for list building campaigns and for ongoing communication.  It works very well for marketers who are developing multiple subscriber lists, and is effective for ongoing communication with subscribers in each subscriber list or in many subscriber lists all at once.  AWeber makes it possible for marketers to  interact with multiple lists at once and to send broadcasts on social media venues.

Use AWeber’s attractive custom lead capture forms to increase and maintain business contacts.  AWeber captures lead information so that you can connect with your leads and keep them informed.  The AWeber auto-responder system is highly customizable and its effects can be far reaching, especially with social media integration on broadcasts.  In addition to adding slots for Name and Email on web forms, add a Phone Number slot as well.  Adding a phone number slot is an essential element because regardless of what anyone says, conversion rates have increased by 20% at least when I have been willing to pick up the phone to leave a cheerful message to show subscribers that I care to help them with their marketing and that I am a real person.  So don’t be afraid to pick up the phone.

Lately I’ve been creating custom splashes, capture pages and banners with AdKreator, and embedding or leading to AWeber custom capture forms.   Coordinate custom web capture forms by colors with photographs.

Seasonal capture pages are nice, too, and came in handy for the holiday season.  Here is one I did using my grand-puppy, Presley Higgins using an AWeber Christmas web capture form.  If you note, the Herbalife capture page on the right side-bar of this blog has fruits and vegetables, and was also available in AWeber.  Or perhaps you just want white, to blend with the back-ground.

Once you create an AWeber campaign, you can generate a sharing code for follow-up messages if you are working with a team of marketers.  A sharing code enables a series of follow-up messages to be shared by simply popping in the code.  Again, screen sharing via Skype makes this relatively easy to teach others.  It saves time, and marketers can then go in and edit the messages to embed their own links, pictures, signatures, and change any wording to suit their own voices.

In a current advertising campaign I’m running, I’m meeting a diverse group of people who are interested in increasing their skill sets in Internet marketing and are in various stages of developing their home businesses.  Because many of them are not putting all of their eggs in one basket, AWeber is a perfect auto-responder for them because it can be used in multiple campaigns. Tonight, for instance, I assisted a truck driver with an AWeber installation who has also been developing Internet marketing and a network marketing company.  He was actually on his way from Missouri to Oklahoma, but parked the truck and we screen shared via Skype to load an AWeber campaign code and develop web form capture pages to re-direct to a video so he could get set up for marketing our new advertising campaign.

Family Picture on Christmas Eve 2012On New Years’ Eve, I broadcasted an email with a Happy New Year message, personalized with a picture of my family and grand-puppy, with notification about a New Year’s Day webinar.  I forgot that my AWeber broadcasts were in sync with social media sites.  At dinner that night, I noted that the AWeber live broadcast had gone out on Twitter and had already been retweeted by followers, which was really cool, increasing the reach of the broadcasted message.

If you’re ready to get started with AWeber, I am more than happy to serve you by helping you with the set up process.  Get started for a $1 trial today and you’ll continually discover the enhanced functionality and creative opportunities inherent in the AWeber Autoresponder system.  Click HERE for more information.

And for a great program to practice using it, join me in The Online Ad Network and start building your list today!  Enter through the opt-in page so that I can connect with you and assist you in your efforts.

Happy, Blessed New Year to you and all your loved ones, from my home to yours.  Luanne Crawford

Tips To Boost Meal Replacement Shakes

by luannecrawford on December 14, 2012

boost meal replacement shakesMeal replacement shakes don’t have to all be the same. Most people just add milk or juice to them, but you can get very creative, depending on your health goals and what you want to achieve, whether it be for more protein, flavor, more anti-oxidents, minerals, vitamins, fiber, etc. I like adding frozen blue berries and rasberries to my meal replacement shakes, or sometimes pineapple. The frozen fruit makes the shake thicker and more filling, as does ice, so you can even eat it with a spoon and enjoy it like a fresh frozen dessert.

My daughter recently got a juicer and was experimenting by adding vegetables to her meal replacement shake, like a little spinach, kale, carrots, etc. You can even try adding some pumpkin or winter squash. Fresh fruits and vegetables provide anti-oxidants, fiber, vitamins and lots of good nutritional value.

Although meal replacement shakes often have enough protein, sometimes people want to have a little more protein to hold them longer through the day or for other health reasons. Dr. Susan Bowman of Herbalife International says that although extra unflavored protein powder, milk, soy milk or almond mild can add more protein to your meal replacement shakes, there are other proteins to consider. She suggests other proteins such as yogurt, cottage cheese or even soft tofu.

If extra healthy fats are what you’d like, healthy nut or seed butters like almond, hemp or pistachio butters. You can also add flax or chia seeds to fatten up your meal replacement shakes. Avacado is another consideration for extra healthy fat.

Dr. Bowman also suggests that spices are great, not only to add extra flavor to meal replacement shakes, but for good health as well. Spices like cinnamon and cloves may be very tasty. Grated ginger root, fresh mint are additional boosters for nutrition, and flavor.

Even though Herbalife meal replacement shakes come in many satisfying, healthy and tasty flavors, you may want to get creative and try some of of these add-ins. Watch the video below with Dr. Susan Bowman as she discusses how to boost meal replacement shakes or change them up and why you might want to do so.

ListJoe is a safelist marketing email advertising system that re-opened after system upgrades in October 2012.  ListJoe builds your brand and social network with every email sent.  Safelist marketing email advertising is often used by online marketers who subscribe, knowing that they can send and receive email advertising from other safelist members. This keeps them up to date on what is happening in the world of online marketing opportunities.  It also solves the problem for marketers who have not yet set up a blog, or have difficulty with blogging, and opens a website traffic generation strategy which enables them to participate in online marketing.

ListJoe has great social branding features and offers networking to other profile pages within the list mailer system.  Marketers can issue connection requests on social media, or leave messages on other member’s profile pages.  When mail is sent, the branding goes with each email, so marketers can begin to put faces with names.

I like the features inside the ListJoe mailers.  You can add hyperlinks, pictures, or even copy an entire blog post and send it out to email list members with links and photos in tact.  I have not experienced this capacity with other list mailers. It was ListJoe’s capture page that caught my eye, and I’m so glad it did.

When you use list mailers like ListJoe, its important to set up a separate Gmail account where the email advertising or safelist mailers can be received. Set up a filter called “List Builders” or “Safelist Mailers” and then create a ListJoe sub-label. Once inside the back office of ListJoe, there are other list mailers that you can subscribe to, and then enter your ID number for those safelist mailers in your ListJoe back office. As you promote ListJoe to other marketers and they join you, they will also then have an opportunity to join you in the other recommended safelist marketing companies, which you will also set up a label for in your filtered Gmail account.

Free members can send 1000 emails and continue on a credit click basis, or they may upgrade. To get Joe to send email advertising to 1000 members right now, CLICK HERE.

Studies show that physical activity as a lifestyle priority vastly improves health benefits and self preservation in the aging process.  In fact, the video below clearly demonstrates that the health benefits of physical activity as a lifestyle priority far outweigh the detriments of not engaging in physical activity.  This vital health message can change your life, so I urge you to watch it carefully.

The benefits of physical activity which improve overall health often get lost in the shuffle of daily commutes, increased screen time (in front of a computer or television), depression, and various other distractions which get in the way of making physical activity a lifestyle priority for better health. People are stressed out about the economy, and are encountering increased pressures to provide for their families or their own needs, forgetting or putting nutrition as well as the health benefits of physical activity, placing these important self-preservation needs on the back burner, to their own detriment.

Its important to not lose site of self-care, but all too often, people who still have jobs are stuck receiving road therapy due to a daily commute which may interfere with self-care, only to go to a desk where they spend the rest of the day in front of a computer screen or in other sedentary activities such as time-consuming meetings.  Or, others who may be experiencing an employment layoff, may be paralyzed by depression and find it hard to even move. While some may be stuck in front of the television, the benefits of physical activity can improve your mindset and your health. For Internet marketers and stay at home business people, you too must be up and outers; that is, don’t get caught up in the couch funnel trap.

Be encouraged to re-focus on self-care.  Examine your commitment to daily physical activity and after watching the video below from American Health Journal, you may consider making some modifications to implement physical activity into your lifestyle to improve your overall health. This doesn’t mean you have to over-due it and go pump metal, although some weight bearing exercises are important for your bones. Walking around your neighborhood, walking short distances instead of driving, and even walking the dog can count! Take in the sights, sounds and the beauty of nature while you engage in mild physical activity, get some fresh air and enjoy it.

Meanwhile, do take some time watch, share and vote up this captivating and informative video below, in which Dr. Mike Evans brilliantly elucidates as Liisa Sorsa illustrates the health benefits of physical activity as a lifestyle versus the detriments of not engaging in it. This is why Hippocrates said, “Walking is man’s best medicine.
