Our Featured Guests
1. Lorez Bailey shares her journey to her dream job working with teenagers at the Chops Teen Club, including the obstacles she had to ovecome. Lorez has older mentors at the Chops teen Club to tell their stories of the journey to get to where they are now with the teens to give the teens encouragement to go for their goal in spite of criticism or scorn. These mentors are also trained to sense if there are underlying pressures or depression bothering the teens to help alleviate the stresses early on. Lorez describes how the Teen Club became a reality with the generous bequeathment from Charles “Chops” Demeo to the County of Sonoma to “create a safe and productive place for teens in our community.” The Annual Membership fee is only $60 (which comes out to $5/month) and no teen is turned away with the help of a scholarship fund set up by another generous donor. Chops Teen Club caters to 7th through 12th graders (Middle and High School students).
About our Guest: Lorez Bailey is in her second year serving as the Executive Director of Chop’s Teen Club. Lorez has over 20 years’ experience implementing and managing youth development programs. She has a passion for creating an environment and opportunities that empower youth to expand their capacity to be confident and well-prepared for whatever future endeavors they pursue. Lorez earned her B.A. in Communication Studies and Telecommunications from Sacramento State University and Master’s Degree in Education from Sonoma State University. Lorez has also worked a large part of her career in media. In recognition of Women’s History Month, in March and of her remarkable work Lorez was awarded by U.S. Congressman Mike Thompson as Sonoma County “Woman of the Year.”
