college & career attainment program manager
Oscar* struggled to focus in the classroom and started to fall behind on work. I began to meet with him weekly and connected with his struggle to focus due to my own Attention Deficit Disorder. We worked together to practice strategies for an easier time succeeding in the classroom. He implemented some of the tools on his own time and came back to me smiling wide when he showed me the to- do list he made. We both celebrated this success. I felt so grateful to be part of an organization providing such personal, one-on-one support academically and emotionally.
