Less Funerals, More Graduations

As a North Philly girl who eventually made it through grad school but saw many of her friends and community members die on the streets, Tierra Jones is determined to make a difference in the lives of underserved youth. In this session we sit down with Tierra to talk about what motivates her to get up everyday – A.T.T.R.A.C.T. Philly – the non-profit organization she founded to empower youth while promoting the importance of education.

A.T.T.R.A.C.T = A Team Taking Responsive Actions with Conscious Thoughts
