Sarah Success Story

Sarah smiling.
 

Sarah entered the child welfare system at 14 and participated in the Children's Services Council of Broward County funded Future Prep program through Memorial. Her Prep counselor listened to her, guided her, and taught her how to advocate for herself. While there, Sarah obtained her GED and began attending college.

The impact Future Prep had on Sarah fomented her desire to give back to her community. Today, she is a Counselor for Memorial’s CSC-funded Youth Force program, helping other young people gain confidence and determine their own path for the future.
