“The staff at YouthBuild Philly made it clear that they were going to hold me to high standards, and pushed me to be my best. They believed in me, even when I didn’t believe in myself. Now I feel like I have the potential and motivation to take on anything I want to achieve. The school took me out of my comfort zone, brought me out of my shell, and gave me leadership experience. That helped me realize who I really am. As an alum I still come to YouthBuild for advice and support, and that’s helping me succeed in college.”
-Brayell, YouthBuild Class of 2012 – Student at Community College of Philadelphia (Academic Honors List Spring 2013) and Alumni Mentor to current YouthBuild students
