Common Wealth @ West HighA high school junior with an ankle bracelet courtesy of curfew violations and disorderly conduct: AJ was the perfect candidate for Common Wealth’s Business Mentoring Program, a “mini job that got me prepared” to take AJ to the next level.

Though he was previously involved in activities like petty theft, the opportunities that he saw as possible through Common Wealth convinced him that he needed to think long term.

Common Wealth helped AJ harness his internal drive and find a job at a local pet store where his managers were more concerned with his potential for growth rather than his past mistakes: “I got over thinking about just myself all the time…now I’m a better person in general,” said AJ about the help he received from Common Wealth.
