Celebrating Jacquetta

First Place for Youth is proud to acknowledge the accomplishments of Jacquetta, one of our young people in Solano County.

“Jacquetta has come so far since first entering program, she has gotten her GED, completed a semester of College, and started working with Rising Sun last fall as an Energy Specialist. She did such an awesome job that Rising Sun consulted with me to create an intern position for her to gain more skills around Community Outreach and Marketing. Jacquetta has now been promoted to a Site Manager for the Summer youth program. She is a single mom and a natural leader!” – Susan K., Employment and Education Specialist at First Place for Youth.
