As a freshman in high school, Melissa recalls wanting extra support. “If I had a question in class, sometimes there were twenty other students to compete with. Or if I wanted to talk to a counselor, she might not be available.”
Earlier in life, Melissa remembers her brother attending YouthBuild, an alternative high school setting offered at Goodwill. “I remember the good things he told me about the program. He said it challenged him mentally. I could see the difference.” Deciding it was time for a change, Melissa applied and was accepted at YouthBuild.
