The Connecting Project: buildOn Empowers Youth

This is another wonderful education-based program that empowers youth. My friend, Giselle Martinez, is raising funds for buildOn which focuses on high school students graduating and moving onto college.

“95% of buildOn students not only graduate from high school, they go on to college.”

That’s a huge percentage especially when “82% of all prisoners in America are high school dropouts.”  I have had the opportunity to visit Sing Sing in support of their arts-based rehabilitation program. There’s no reason to be incarcerated or hit bottom to begin life.
