Carlos working towards success as an adult

May 14, 2012


Carlos, 23

Carlos is highly motivated to make something happen for himself. And while he appreciates his past and where he grew up, he wants out of the old mindset. He wants to channel his past toward a positive future.

Carlos connected with a valuable mentor through a job training program provided by Youth Villages for young adults in the transitional living program.

He’s now working toward a career and a future.

“I’ve set boundaries and have learned to prioritize more so I’m doing what’s in my best
interest. My goals for the future are to pay off bills, save money, and go back to college for
culinary arts and business.” – Carlos

Carlos is one of several young people featured in the Youth Villages 2011 Program Report. Learn how Youth Villages helps young people like Carlos and hundreds of others like him every year through the Transitional Living program.
