Meet Jaleisha and her two boys.
We met Jaleisha a couple of years ago after one of our Begin Now volunteers invited her to join our classes. At that time, Jaleisha, being a single mother was facing financial struggles along with other struggles. She took our Affirming Potential class and as it challenged her to dream and set goals for her future, she shared that she dreamed of pursuing a career working with children.
She began to volunteer at a local elementary school. Eventually she was hired as a substitute paraeducator. Today she holds a Paraeducator position at the school. Not only has her career taken a good start, she now serves in our Begin Now ministry as a group leader for Affirming Potential. Jaleisha now gets to help others in reaching their dreams and uses her own experiences to do that remarkably.
