ODESSA, Texas (Local 2 News, Fox 24) - Karl Boroski seeing the importance of his job this week. "They don't understand the consequences. They don't think about the consequences before they do the action," says Karl Boroski talking about juvenile actions.  

Boroski is the Executive Director of Rope Youth, a nonprofit that works with at risk kids through mentoring and education. He says many factors can contribute to a youth's violent behavior such as a lack of food, bad influences, and not enough teaching from guardian figures and positive role models. "If you want to get to the root of the problem, that's it. You have nobody to teach you, if you don't have anybody to teach you, you're not going to learn," says Boroski.  

Boroski adds that many of these actions by at risk teens are preventable. With summer vacation around the corner, members of the community can step up to stop the tide of juvenile crime. "If everybody takes the time where they can reach one person, if we all did that, just imagine how the world will change," says Boroski.
