A Day in the Life: Harry Grammer
Where Ocean and Community Connect
After a personal encounter with the juvenile justice system, Obama Fellow Harry Grammer found his purpose in life: to help other justice system-involved youth build a brighter future for themselves. He founded New Earth to mentor and empower at-risk youth to transform their lives through art, poetry, educational, and vocational programs.
Dive into an outing Harry took with his mentees and LA Waterkeeper, a marine protection agency, in an effort to expand their horizons.
“I was one of these young people. I spent five years on juvenile probation as a young man. I left home at 18-years-old. I was a college drop out. I realized that the best thing I could do is help young people who may have traveled down the same path as I did.“
