Jade Rodriguez

To Whom This May Concern:

My name is Katherine Wilson I would like to write this letter on behalf of Jade Rodriquez. Jade came into our program on July 10, 2014 as a new participant she has been working with us and she has been present every day during our empowerment camp. I would like to write this letter on her behalf and to give insight as to what we have plan for Jade for the remainder of the summer. If given the opportunity YEZ will continue to work with Jade to ensure that she has the necessary skills going forward that she needs to be successful.
