WILL TO CHANGE is the story of William Kozielski, a twenty-nine-year-old parolee who is breaking the cycle of violence in his community, and mentoring youth out of gangs and delinquent behavior.

The film was created as a talking tool for youth and residents of Clarksdale, Mississippi, to address root causes of violence and to seek solutions together, and is available to support community screenings.

The film will also be used by Mississippi Department of Corrections to support pre-release and re-entry programs starting in 2014.

Community Outreach:

Since February 1, 2014, the filmmakers have been outreaching to the faith community in Jackson and the Mississippi Delta to grow networks of support, both for at-risk youth and ex-offenders who are re-entering society. Please contact us to Join this network.

Locally in Clarksdale, "WILL TO CHANGE" is intended to support Mayor Bill Luckett's mentoring Mentoring For Life initiative launched on March 11, 2014, to match caring adults with at-risk youth for long-term support.

• 73% of the children in Clarksdale live in a single parent home

Talk to your pastor about becoming a mentor, or a point person for this program in your church.
