The Young Men Emerging unit at the D.C. Department of Corrections houses young men with older mentors who have served since they were teens or young adults, along with specially trained staff. It's a therapeutic, rehabilitative community that values love and support.

This default punishment has led to overcrowded cells, budget shortfalls, and conditions that breed violence.
