Albert Watson is an officer at the Dane County Juvenile Detention Center, where he has created a cooking club to connect with the youth incarcerated there.
In this story, shared as part of the UW-Madison Odyssey Program writing class, he discusses the club, his philosophy of working with youth and how he saved a teenager’s life.
For 12 weeks this summer, Isthmus will promote stories selected by Benton and Rubin from three seasons of Inside Stories. They’re told by participants of the Moth StorySLAM, UW-Madison Odyssey Project and the annual “Listen to Your Mother” performance.
