empowerment groups

In Control provides programs that help build character and
encourage the use of a variety of skills.

I used to attend In Control when I was in high school. I am considered one of the alumni. In Control's staff cared about me and my journey as a young woman. Because they cared, I can honestly say that they played a major role in my success as an upcoming singer and model. They helped me find resources, the staff encouraged me and helped me to focus on my goals. I would recommend this program for all young teens.
