Our Successes

Success Stories

2021 Graduate. When he first came into our class he did not necessarily want to be there, loved making a scene or joking around to create distractions, but kept coming. After inviting Tua Kealoha and Damarr Jones to speak to our class, something changed. They became great mentors to him and he even had an opportunity to participate in one of their films. He became a motivator to other youth his age and ended up being the MC at his graduation.
