And this initiative is designed to instill confidence and hope in students that are surrounded by the perils of negativity on a daily basis. There has to be a medium in place to combat the negative images that these students are exposed to and this initiative will give hope and opportunities to high school students, living in distressed neighborhoods,”
“At some point we have to stop, talking about what needs to be done in our communities and just have the boldness to get it done. There are some really great organizations that are working to help at risk students and we’re joining this mission,” said Betty Saintvil-Edmond, Executive Vice President of TPODMEP. “This program simply strives to help those that need us most.”
