Youths swap career in crime for baking


Homeboy Bakery is a community-help programme in LA which has been training young people at risk of committing crimes or joining gangs to become bakers instead.

The project, started by a Jesuit priest in the 1980s, has proved so successful that it is now expanding its product range to include textile printing and even its own fashion range.
