Jorge's Story

As a high school junior, Jorge thought college was completely out of the question. He qualified for free and reduced lunch, barely managed to pass his classes, and didn’t care about school. All that changed when he met Erica Mosca, founder and executive director of Leaders in Training, a United Way funded partner.
