Since its inception, MPCT has for me confirmed that young people from all types of backgrounds can and do succeed in the right environment. It has been my privilege to witness young people make the very difficult transition from childhood to adulthood and develop into positive, productive role models in their own right. They become members of their communities and are able to contribute emotionally and economically.
