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.”
