"I sat in on a life skills program and listened to Mr. Goulet lead the group in discussion. It was very uplifting to witness a person so dedicated to inspiring troubled youth to become aware of their full potential, and encourage them to engage in developmental activities, and make positive life choices. The juvenile justice system needs more people like Mr. Goulet."
