Youth Spotlight: Taliah

Our Youth Spotlight this month goes to Taliah, who was nominated by Lennie Grant, a Coach Supervisor at our Achieving Independence Center! Taliah has taken significant strides towards her independence, and has come a very long way from when she first started at Valley Youth House. She has been a member of the Achieving Independence Center since 2013, and has just recently finished the Tier 1 of the Achieving Independence Center curriculum.  Taliah has also been accepted into Valley Youth House’s Room & Board  program, which will supply Taliah with shelter, food, rent, security deposits, utilities, furniture, household items and other start up expenses. Along with her success within our programs, Taliah is now enrolled into the Community College of Philadelphia, and is employed at Lincoln Financial Field as a security guard. We are excited to see Taliah continue her growth!
