“Working with (FGLA) First Generation Leaders of America has been a great experience. I have to say I admire their professionalism, punctuality, and engaging demeanor. It’s not often that the students of WPYC easily warm up to an outside facilitator, however, not only do they adore FGLA, but they also continuously ask me when they’re coming back.”
Jamieson Williams, Executive Director of the Winton place Youth Center
