Here is what the Clean Crew Supervisor Tyra had to say about some of the growth she has seen in the young men since she has been working with them.
Josiah – When he first came, he was excited to work! He’s become much more mentally engaged now. Started thinking about the future, making plans, the big picture, etc.
Ryan – Makes light of any situation. Great leader and artist. Creates community wherever he goes-invites people in. He teaches us it’s okay to slow down and listen.
King – Works hard, anticipates need. Cool, calm collected. Challenges the team to reach their goals and become self-reliant.
Miles – takes a big idea and makes it practical, has a way of making people think through their goals. Runs a soul cafe with his mom.
