SHARE Billy Zane’s new plan to fight Chicago youth violence

Billy Zane has teamed up with noted British youth mentor David C.M. Carter to address the causes and effects of youth violence in the actor’s Chicago hometown. Inspired by programs Carter launched in the U.K.

The Breakthrough Project in Chicago initially will be funded by the sales of Carter’s “Breakthrough” book — with the author committing all of the 2013 and 2014 profits to the Chicago anti-violence initiative.

As Zane puts it, “More books sold. More kids through the program.”
