We are grateful for the love & support for our program
We were honored to receive the Brandon T. Moore Excellence in Leadership Award from the Durham-based Thomas Mentor Leadership Academy.
This award recognizes outstanding leaders in the Durham Community who have and are giving back to the youth. Thank you Rev. Larry E. Thomas, founder & CEO of the Thomas Mentoring Leadership Academy, for this honor and recognition of the work You & Five-O is doing in the community with our youth.
The Youth Advisory Council was overwhelmingly supportive of the presentation with several of the youth specifically stating what an important and timely training this is in light of recent national issues. The atmosphere was one where the youth felt safe to ask questions. The consensus from the BECOMING Youth Advisory Council was that Ms. Council should take the You & Five-O message out into the community with the belief that others would benefit from it.
- Jennifer Meade, Former BECOMING Project Supervisor
