21 year-old Dakotah recently shared with us how he got his life on-track through CCNB’s corpsmember program. “Before coming to CCNB, I felt defeated – I didn’t have a job or a plan, and I felt bad for sitting around not being a productive part of society.”
Dakotah always wanted to graduate from high school and find a good paying job, but his large public high school caused him debilitating anxiety and he dropped out, causing feelings of hopelessness.
“I had friends who were CCNB corpsmembers, and with their and my family’s encouragement, I applied, was accepted, and started to attend CCNB’s John Muir Charter School.”
Soon Dakotah was doing well academically and in his corpsmember work, and last October he earned his high school diploma. “My schoolwork improved dramatically because I was able to work at my own speed, with plenty of guidance. The staff helped me stay on task, and helped me mature and become more responsible. I actually enjoy learning now, which was my biggest breakthrough.”
Dakotah is now enrolled at Santa Rosa Junior College.
