It was a day to celebrate for Troy, shown here with our vocational counselor Daisy. He and fellow classmates Debra, Brian, Kaltouma, Corey and Qai graduated from our 12-session job readiness class. Two seats were empty, but that was good news, not bad: Corey and Qai were absent because they found jobs and were already at work!

We are grateful to the business community mentors and volunteers who help make our vocational program a success, including our friend Michael Richardson of Mid-Atlantic Federal Credit Union, who teaches a great unit on financial literacy.
