Youth Outreach Services met with Mr. Kerry Bolognese, Director, Federal Relations, with the Office of Government and Community Relations at George Mason University to seek help, in obtaining Federal Funding to reduce recidivism. The funding will help operate and renovate YOS nontraditional Career Center. One of YOS goals is to transform ex-juvenile offenders to social entrepreneurs. As YOS move forward with the project, George Mason University Students are coming involved through GMU Social Entrepreneurship Society as they help YOS staff to do community service outreach. Tameka Casselle, YOS Grant Administrator/Manager and James Doran attended the meeting with Elizabeth Charity, CEO and Founder of the Company. James’ goal is to obtain a Master Degree in Social Work from George Mason University. Presently, he is volunteering his hours to Youth Outreach Services as he attends the University. Here in this picture he is shown with Mr. Angel Cabrera, President of George Mason University. Another one of YOS goals is to turn community services hours at the nontraditional career center into employment for Ex-Juvenile Offenders .
