I enjoy the opportunity to give hope and vision to young people who feel that society has giving up on their future. Giving guidance, showing youth care, love, and positive attention is the motivation behind my passion. Knowing life will only get tougher and harder for the inner city youth that have broken lives, traumatic experiences weekly, and not many role models is why I wanted to be involved in the program. The program is a vehicle to instill self-confidence, enhance social skills, give therapeutic services, and provide a safe, judgement free place to be their self. Seeing the lack of inspiration and dreams in young people at times is heartbreaking, so I try my best to instill drive, dedication, and goals to ensure the chance of a better tomorrow. Even though we lack resources to provide top tier materials, staff, and field trips, we make up for it with a plethora of care, attention, and consistency. Providing a source of happiness, a positive escape from the negative day to day experiences, and building youth to become more than their circumstances is a great feeling.
