“I didn’t know anything about goal setting and how that could change my life. I set goals I never thought I would reach, but with the help of my TMC mentor, I was able to go so much further!”
Jada was forced to drop out of high school at age 16 because she could not afford to take care of her son and pay for a weekly bus pass. Her story was forever changed when she entered her first TMC Program. TMC covered her transportation expenses, enabling her to stay in school. Her dedicated mentor helped her achieve the impossible…graduation with a GPA of 3.4! Jada graduated from NIU and is working as a high school social worker.
