Silent Victims of Crime (SVC) is proud to announce that three of our young people in the South Carolina chapter, graduated high-school and are beginning college this fall. One them is a young man who is following his dreams to Culinary School in NYC. SVC Executive Director, Paulette Pfeiffer began mentoring ‘Zay’ when he was just 4 years old. Growing up with SVC exposed him to many experiences. For example, at the age of 7 he met his father and formed a bond that warmed everyone’s heart, when his dad showed up to his graduation. Speaking of, when Zay’s high-school Graduation Day came around, Paulette was all too proud to receive an invitation in the mail. Even more so, when he revealed his continuing education. Good luck Zay!
One our collaborator’s Educate Tomorrow. has taken on 2 students from SVC’s Teen LEADERship Miami program. These 2 young adults wish to seek higher education and they couldn’t have found a better resource than Educate Tomorrow to realize their goals. This organization serves Miami-Dade County’s foster care youth, and strives to make education an attainable goal. SVC is grateful to Virginia Emmons, Brett McNaught, Sarah Camacho and the ENTIRE Educate Tomorrow team for making room for children of prisoners.
The Miami Mentoring Collaborative’s Inaugural Summit has been postponed until 2016. Silent Victims of Crime is also a member of this AMAZING Collaborative.
