As a young woman, pregnant at 16, it would've been easy to give up because the odds were already stacked against me. YPD has been a second family to me. I am forever grateful for the opportunity they gave me at such a young age. Here I am, 5 years later, with a Bachelor's in Social Work from Morgan State. This organization has a way of not making one feel ashamed and welcoming with open arms in hopes of pushing individuals to their fullest potential. YPD not only molded me, but prepared me for the professional world both as a young woman and mother.
After participating in YPD's Job Development and Work Experience Program for 3 years during high school, Carolyn went on to obtain her Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work from Morgan State University.
