ADVANCE FOR USE SUNDAY, MARCH 23, 2014 AND THEREAFTER - In this Feb. 27, 2014 photo, student Jalen Pickett, talks during a class that teaches anger management and conflict resolution skills at Cody High School in Detroit. Jalen, now a diligent student with aspirations to be a defense lawyer, had an inauspicious start to high school. His fighting earned him a spot in the new police department program - the Children in Trauma Intervention Camp which gives students an alternative to expulsion in the form of training and counseling from police officers and other adult mentors. "If Detroit can change, it's up to the youth to do it," Jalen says. "I feel Detroit can come back. And if I do go away to college, I plan on coming back here and giving back to Detroit."
