#OTGYpsi: The Village Project At Ypsilanti's Erickson Elementary School

Jun 20, 2018

Many children across the country have incarcerated friends or relatives, especially in the juvenile detention system.  Now, an Ypsilanti elementary school has launched a program to keep its students from entering that system themselves.  In this week's "On the Ground-Ypsi," WEMU's Patrick Campion and Concentrate Media's Brianna Kelly sit down with Erickson Elementary Principal Kelly Mickel and social worker Jody O'Bryan to discuss the school's new "Village Project."
