Juan offers these tips to youth:
- My agency helped me with a weekly college preparation workshop and helped me study for the Scholastic Aptitude Test that allowed me to get into college. They also assisted me with basic needs such as getting a job, food, clothing, and a safe place to stay. It is important to take advantage of as many services as you are able to when you have the chance.
- Pursue your passion. I have always had a passion for music and never thought that I would be going to college to play with other people with a similar passion. Never give up on yourself.
