MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER AND YOUTH ADVOCATE CLIFF CROSBY TO SPEAK TO INCARCERATED YOUTH AT ERIE COUNTY PRISON
ERIE, PA – Former NFL player and motivational speaker Cliff Crosby will return to his hometown of Erie, PA to speak to the incarcerated youth at the Erie County Prison on Thursday May 25.
“Being incarcerated can be a great thing or a terrible thing. With every good/bad decision there is still a lesson to be learned. I want to let them know that they can still pursue their educational goals, learn a trade or become certified in other skills. All is not lost, even though right now it appears to be that way,” said Cliff Crosby.
Crosby plans to speak to 50 individuals between the ages of 15 and 20. The talks will include things such as decision-making, mental health, conflict resolution among other topics. Crosby’s goal is to have the conversation to be engaging, and hear the stories from their perspective.
“The actions of some of Erie County’s incarcerated youth have started their lives down the wrong path, but it’s not too late to make a serious lifestyle change. It is my hope that Mr. Crosby and his experience will send a message and inspire change in lives of some of these young people,” said Erie County Executive Brenton Davis.
Crosby will be speaking at 12:30pm on Thursday May 25, 2023 at the Erie County Prison located at 1618 Ash St, Erie, PA 16503. The actual engagement will be closed to the media, but Crosby will be available for interviews immediately following the talks.
