As a former parent of BRYC, the program has made a great impact on my son's life has well has mine. BRYC paved the way and provided resources that would have never been available if he had not been apart of BRYC. BRYC taught me and my son to be open minded when it came to making decisions about college and his future. BRYC helped my son realize that its okay to set goals and have high expectations when it comes to making life choices. I would highly recommend BRYC to other families who may not have the knowledge or resources that will help their child pave the road of success.
