When Brittany Brown first enrolled she was combative and was verbally abusive; she was pregnant, didn’t care and was hopeless about her future. Her mom was in prison and she had been adopted by her aunt. After participating in our mentoring program for one year, Brittany enrolled into our KFM GED school with plans of attending college. She has her own apartment, works two jobs and has a beautiful 3-year old baby.
She is a member of the KFMYOI advisory board helping to provide key insights that help to maintain program relevancy for the target audience.
