Meet Kevin. Kevin, 25, attended All Peoples After-school “Tomorrow’s Leaders” Programming throughout his childhood. As a former YouthSource participate, Kevin was awarded the opportunity to internship at J2 Global, a tech company based in Los Angeles. Kevin describes the internship that is bringing him one step closer to his dreams:

“At J2, I assisted my supervisor in installing software, setting up monitors, and performing other IT duties. The skills required was patience with learning new computer information since it is a lot of material to soak in. I also needed to use my initiative to gain more knowledge about technology and computers.

Dylan was my mentor. He is a genius when it comes to computers. He was very patient with me and took the time to answer all my questions and teach me everything step by step. [During the internship] I assisted Dylan in fixing computer issues such as uninstalling or installing software or imaging computers. My goal is to get my Associates in Photography or English, my Bachelors in Political science, and my Masters in Public Administration. I want to become CHRO (Chief Human Resources Officer) of Disney or a huge company some day. I also want to buy my first house in 5 years. At J2, I met many great people with different skills, and I learned more about computers than I expected to.”

Meet Miguel. Miguel Angel Romero Cruz is a 17 year old YouthSource Participant who credits his close knit family (Mom, Dad, and siblings) for setting a strong example of resiliency, cooperation, support, organization, leadership, and teamwork. Miguel sees and understands the harsh struggles his parents face on a daily basis, and it’s his parents that inspire him every day with their display of resiliency from the strength of his father to work countless nights to his mother raising him and his siblings. He’s also grateful for his siblings who have mentored him and offered academic tutoring throughout his childhood.

Because of family support and Miguel’s hard work, he’s been able to achieve all A’s since 9th grade to his culmination in June 2019 from Thomas Jefferson High School. On his high school diploma, there are three seals that bear the fruition of hard work, commitment, family support, prioritization, attitude, and goal-orientation. Miguel was the Class Valedictorian of Thomas Jefferson High School and feels that his success is his families as well. Miguel’s LAUSD official grade point average since his early years to his graduation was 4.3. Miguel appreciates all of his teachers at Thomas Jefferson High School that taught him that barriers are not meant to be an excuse to give up, but are meant to be surpassed.

Miguel is currently working at a summer paid internship with BuroHappold Engineering and Consulting Co as a MEP (Mechanical, Plumbing, Electrical) Intern with diverse roles; modeling mechanical equipment, rerouting pipework as well as ductwork on floorplans, viewing and managing floor plans, and exploring sustainability and data input. As part of Miguel’s role in BuroHappold, he takes in data from client buildings to assess the level of indoor quality of a building’s air and utilities as well as the thermal comfort of its occupants. The portfolio of projects he has worked on include a number of universities, museums, and office spaces located in California among other states as well. Miguel loves working as an intern at BuroHappold, and has developed great relationships with his Supervisors and Administrators which he now considered mentors: Ms. Kathleen Hetrick, Ms. Sara Kingman, Mr. Lucas Lieberman, and Ms. Lorena De La Cruz. Miguel hopes to pursue a career in the engineering or STEM field, and with Miguel’s natural determination, he’s well on his way.

FamilySource Center Data Intake Specialist Michelle Watson shares a note illustrating the self-determination of FSC Client Deja Snowden.

Meet Deja Snowden. Ms. Snowden, FSC participant since March 2019, originally came into All Peoples seeking emergency food. During Ms. Snowden’s intake, she brought her 2 month old son who is the motivation behind all her success. Ms. Snowden was able to effectively voice her employment, housing and educational goals.

A note from Deja Snowden: “Thanks to Data Intake Specialist Michelle Watson at All Peoples I’ve accomplished so much! I have a new sense of self-confidence, and I’ve paved my way to success. I went into the center putting others needs before the needs of me and my child. Thanks to instructions and a referral from Michelle Watson to the TSE program I now have a job training position with the County of Los Angeles, and I am ready to obtain permanent housing. I was able to complete a Financial Literacy course that helped me understand my finances, make better use of my money and credit, and increase my credit score. I was able to file my income taxes for free, and I got back so much money that I saved some to help me move out when the time is right.

All Peoples has provided me and my child with so many resources like food, clothing and diapers that I will forever be grateful. Through Michelle at All Peoples I’ve been given the tools to go back to school which is something I’ve been on the fence about for a long time. I just want to thank Michelle and everyone else who made it possible to provide the services that are the reason for the success I have today. Michelle is currently helping me find permanent housing and enroll back into school.”

Pictured left to right, FSC Client Deja N Snowden, Ms. Snowden’s son, and FSC Data Intake Specialist Michelle Watson.
