He totally restructured the San Diego BBBS chapter to increase revenue and serve more children. Under his leadership, the number of youth served increased from 230 to over 1,700 and increased revenue from $450,000 to over $3,000,000.

    ncrc-logo KFMB radioMr. Palmer is currently consulting with The National Conflict Resolution Center (NCRC). Built on the principle that every dispute has a solution, the NCRC serves a variety of communities in both the public and private sectors. Paul has high praise for their “Avoiding the Pipeline to Prison- Alternatives for Youth”. They are turning lives around for youths that have committed a crime. Rather than sending them to Juvenile Hall they get to stay in school and work with the victim of the offense to repair the damage. It’s all about communication training, intervention with mediation and helping youth stay in school. Download more information about the program here.
