Quotes from the news wire:
I pride myself in my team, we all pride ourselves on creating a sense of family in our building. So when you come in the building, there's no separation of BDs( Black Disciples), GDs( Gangster Disciples), this clique, that's it, none of that, all that's out the door. When you come into the building, you could actually be a kid, be a student, be free. You're not looking over your shoulder, you're not worried about who's going to walk up on you. You don't have to worry about somebody knocking you upside... It's not about any of that. It's all about education, meeting you where you are and helping you be the most successful person that we could possibly give you.
You really can't tell that it's a hidden gem, we not only support our kids in the building and their educational level, but we support them outside the building in their endeavors. And we still attend their graduations. We send them off to college and actually decorate their dorm rooms. We go to their baby's birthday parties. It's just a plethora of things that we do just to engage, to have that sense of family.
Youth Connection Charter School has 19 campuses( of which Progressive Leadership Academy is one). I think if Youth Connection Charter School was broadened to more areas and more underprivileged neighborhoods, I think we could be much, much more successful, we touch maybe, 4,000 to 5,000 students a year across our 19 campuses. I think if we had some additional campuses, we could change some more lives.
