The College tour NCUS Youth Academy sponsored helped me to make the decision to go to college. I never wanted to go to college before. I now know I want to attend a HBCU after graduation.

I am a concerned citizen of Columbus. I am writing in reference to NCUS. I want you to know the important and positive influence your organization has had in the Community. You are giving inspiration to many people. You give single mothers the willpower to get off welfare to further their education and find employment. NCUS has made a difference.
Community Representative, Sherry Gray
NCUS has been a great experience for me. I have been to other job training classes but never one like NCUS TEC. The staff at NCUS really cares. By providing a Life Coach you gave me someone to talk to in the time of need.
Program Participant, Cicely Floyd
I am satisfied with the results your youth program has made impacting the lives of my roughest and most challenging students. The on-site life coaching plan was well received by the students. Your program delivered an out of the box approach. I have received call from mothers thanking us for your program. Columbus Public Schools need more programs like NCUS Youth Academy.
William Anderson, Principal, Champion Middle School
NCUS Youth Academy has definitely had a positive influence on my son. He has always talked about being successful but not sure how he could go about reaching his goals. Your program has given him self-confidence and has helped him turn from being a straight ‘F’ student into an ‘A’,’ B’ student. I am very proud of my son.
Anecia Brooks, parent, Columbus Public Schools
NCUS Youth Academy has really turned my life around. At first I thought school was a joke. My Youth Coach has really been a positive role model for me.
