Born into abject poverty in Haiti, St. Germain's family moved to Brooklyn's Crown Heights where he adapted to street life and began stealing, dealing drugs, and growing increasingly indifferent to despair and violence. At the age of fifteen he was placed in "Boys Town," a nonsecure detention facility designed for rehabilitation. Surrounded by mentors and positive male authority, St. Germain got his GED and graduated from college. Then he made the bravest decision of his life: to live in the projects and work to reform the way the criminal justice system treats at-risk youth.
