The city of Baton Rouge is taking an innovative approach against crime by offering education. The Lowering Incidents of Violence through Education (L.I.V.E) program will allow several teens the opportunity to earn a variety of job skills. It is a partnership between Baton Rouge Community College, District 5 councilman Darryl Hurst, and the CEASE FIRE organization. The L.I.V.E program launched on Friday, Aug. 26, at the Cadillac Street Park in Baton Rouge. “We believe that education equals income, which equals outcome, and if we want to change north Baton Rouge, we have to change our median income and it starts right here in our career program by allowing this community to make the uneducated educated,” said Metro councilman Darryl Hurst.
