Meet Qasas: Graduate of New Door’s Employment Program

Fresh out of high school, Qasas found himself at a stand-still. He had grown up in a rough neighborhood characterized by gang activity and frequent violence. With no skill set, motivation, or idea of what his future might look like, he began sinking into the stereotypes of youth in his neighborhood, sitting around and waiting for something to happen and getting wrapped up in trouble. He needed a job.
