CDL Staff Family, 1 Child
Playing the guitar
Jonathan has been a part of CDL’s Youth Mentorship Program since the summer of 2017, and is now in our Scholarship Program as well. He is the nephew of CDL staff member Nora, who took him to live in her home after he was going through a difficult family situation. Jonathan is a very friendly and outgoing young man. He loves to laugh and have fun, and dreams of being a Mechanical Engineer one day. It has been a pleasure to see Jonathan grow and thrive amidst the stable environment that Nora’s home and the CDL Youth Mentorship Program provide. Because of the scholarship that he receives in CDL’s Scholarship Program, Jonathan is able to continue studying. Without this scholarship, Jonathan would have to work and would not have the opportunity to finish high school. Jonathan shared with us that he “is so thankful to be able to continue going to school.” He dreams of being on the worship team in church one day and of “being someone” in life.
