Purple Project

I’m really excited about speaking at The Second Annual Youth & Adult Foster Care Conference from The Purple Project. As you know, I was in foster care from 13 years old to 17 years old. That time in my life shaped many of my core values so I’ve decided to write a book about it. “All My Mistakes: Money tips for kids in care” will be published June 2011.

I’ll be delivering the keynote lunch address on Friday, two personal finance seminars on Saturday, and signing copies of my books:

Money Matters: The Get It Done in 1 Minute Workbook
10 Things College Students Need to Know About Money
All My Mistakes: Money tips for kids in care

Register for the Second Annual Youth & Adult Foster Care Conference now!

Other notables include hip hop icon Darryl “DMC” McDaniels, Judge Michael Ryan, country music star Jimmy Wayne, and foster care advocate Cherish Thomas.

MYDC Board

I’m thrilled to have been asked to sit on the Board of Misunderstood Youth Development Center.

The Misunderstood Youth Development Center, Corporation (MYDC) is a youth prevention and intervention 501c3 non-profit organization founded in 2005 by Terryl De Mendonca.

They say, “it takes a village to raise a child.” The Misunderstood Youth Development Center strives to be the village that our community so desperately seeks.

MYDC’s mission is to create various individual, peer and family oriented programs that will allow self-expression while Helping to Understand, Develop and Stimulate the Minds of our Youth.

MYDC organizationally has two (2) divisions, Empowering Youth Program (EYP) and Fresh Start.
