Border Patrol REAL Program Mentoring Brownsville Teens
BROWNSVILLE - Border Patrol agents are making sure some Brownsville I.S.D. students are staying on the straight and narrow in the REAL program.
Around 20 students from ages 13 to 17 years of age, who are at risk of truancy and other issues in school, are now being mentored in the program. The program provides the students with role models and teaches them important live lessons to keep them out of the court system in the future. Border Patrol Acting Chief Woody Lee stated, "In life there is choices and sometimes they make the wrong choices and here is the opportunity for alternatives, provide them necessary mentorship from people to show them there are better ways of doing things and can take control of their lives and pursue their dreams."
