Dontae McKeiver is Giving the Gift of a Caring Adult
“During my service as a Massachusetts Promise Fellow I had the opportunity to grow in more ways than one. The Massachusetts Promise Fellowship not only provides a service for community organizations and at risk youth, it provides an invaluable service for stellar change agents who want to see a positive shift in balance in our communities. I have gained a wealth of knowledge, lifelong relationships, career opportunities and social capital within my two years of service. I also gained the importance of what it means to be a caring adult to youth.
I believe that every young person that I have worked with has potential to accomplish any goal they set out to reach. By trusting young people’s minds and backing them in whatever capacity that is needed, I have built relationships that will last a life time with the youth that I have served. A caring adult understands how amazing our youth are.”
