My name is Charissa Hayes and I live in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. If you are not aware, Louisiana is ranked low in education here in the United States. I started Youth Continuance after teaching at a rural high school realizing that administrators focus was testing and NOT post-high school. I am passionate that ALL students should be prepared for college or the workfore after high school and it is up to US (the community) to make sure this happens regardless of social class. As a contributor you will help those who could not normally afford a tutor, ACT prep, the opportunity to get the assistance he or she needs to pass a test or score high enough on the ACT to be the first person in their family to goto college. As a contributor you will enable that boy or girl an opportunity to goto his or her first interview properly dressed with a professional resume and ettitiqute that goes with it.
