“Before I came to YouthBuild, Temple University was my dream school but I didn’t know if I could actually do it. Participating in YouthBuild’s summer bridge program at Community College of Philadelphia helped me earn college credits while I was still at YouthBuild, and prepared me for college-level classes.
I recently completed an Associate’s Degree in criminal justice at CCP, and am proud to say that I just started my first semester at Temple. I am exceeding my own expectations, and it feels amazing. Many young people feel stuck because they don’t have their diploma, but YouthBuild gives you a second chance to be somebody and to do something positive with your life.”
