“Through the College Bound program I have gotten to know two incredibly impressive young women. Both women are thriving at universities and it’s been an amazing experience getting to know them both at the start of their journeys. One has bravely ventured cross country for professional culinary training at a top program and is in her second year. She’s done a great job navigating a new city and new environment. The other is just starting school in San Diego, a new city for her. The JIT family provides a great support system. The College Bound program in particular facilitates the transition to university by providing youth with the basics they need and enables them to focus on school and professional development.”
