Violence Prevention on the Streets of Boston

Among those who've worked with young people in Boston to help prevent violence is Celestino Arias, also known as "Brother Tino." He's a Capuchin monk who's leaving the city after working as director of youth services at Catholic Charities of Greater Boston for the past six years. In 2001, Brother Tino started a teen center, primarily for the Cape Verdean community. Now more than 200 young people are now involved. We recently visited Brother Tino at his office in Dorchester and asked him whether Boston can replicate the "miracle" of the 1990s.
