Review for Just Us 4 Youth, Pomona, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When we began this non-profit, we had a lot of dreams and aspirations but not much experience. I served as mentor in elem., middle and high schools, counselor, parent lead, and did admin work to help us get here. Today I work as a contractor doing varied duties. Although I have been a Social Worker, a mother, a Middle school teacher, nothing compared to this experience of mentoring/working for this org. I had to readjust my views, throw away my prejudices and push through my limitations in reaching hurting, broken, beautiful lives. Those youth we have come to love, and whom we have seen through some of their toughest years, have been worth knowing! They have changed us as much as we have helped them. Even at 65 years, I feel young and full of purpose at JU4Y!

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field
