Hard Work and Second Chances Turn Lives Around

Victoria V. came to Community Teamworks’s YouthBuild program in June of 2012.  She was 17 years old, pregnant, and on probation.  Victoria was committed to turning her life around and was in need of a second chance.  Her probation officer agreed to relieve her from probation if she achieved her GED.  Determined to graduate before her baby was born, Victoria did just that! She achieved her GED and fulfilled the terms of her probation.  Victoria is now enrolled at the Lowell Hair Academy and is dedicated to providing a better life for herself and her new family.
