Mentorships

 Mr. Waters, Father

I would like to thank Youth Business University and Mr. Jeffery for all the hard work that you have done in mentoring my son. When I first met Mr. Jeffery in October 2016, I told him that I thought the mentorship program was not going to work but we would give it a try. Over the weeks and months, I have seen much improvement in my son's attitude and grades (from straight F's to C's and B's). Youth Business University and Mr. Jeffery have been a big help to my son, my family, and me.
