Reducing Cycle of Crime, a Belton Priority for 2024

As a district attorney and career prosecutor, John Belton has seen firsthand the correlation between the lack of a high school diploma and the high percentage of those incarcerated.

Belton’s statewide relationships with district attorneys and sheriffs give him an opportunity to continue to help expand successful mentoring programs like Teach One to Lead One Louisiana, as well as the Boys and Girls Clubs of North Louisiana, which provide a safe sanctuary for students to study and learn.

Teach One to Lead One provides certified mentors from the community who partner with public schools, juvenile courts, and other youth-oriented groups.

This program produces measurable results that improve attitudes, academics, and attendance at school, which in turn help students graduate from high school.
