Duncan Kirkwood has been working hard in the city of Buffalo for a while now, he has been a voice for the people in his community on a number of issues. I wrote about his most recent project, "Rerouting" which is a book he wrote that is focused on helping people deal with setbacks and overcoming many obstacles.

Now, Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown and Duncan Kirkwood have teamed up for the donation of 200 books to the Mayor's 2021 Summer Internship Program. Duncan's book offers ideas for the development of resilience skills.

Right now so many of our young people are struggling with mental health issues. My book "Rerouting" will help them learn how to overcome these setbacks and begin to find their purpose in life. The Mayor's summer internship program provides so many great opportunities for our youth to learn and grow, I hope these donations of books add value to an already stellar program.

said, Ducan Kirkwood according to

Mayor Brown's Summer Youth Internship and Employment program will provide in-person and virtual employment as well as training to youth in the city of Buffalo. The program will give students the opportunity to work 20 hours per week over the course of a 6-week program. The Brown administration plans to invest over $2,300,000 in the summer program. Students that would like to apply will have until March 31, 2021, and the program will begin July 12th and run to August 20, 2021.
