PRL Counseling of America, LLC.
D. P. was referred through the Department of Juvenile Justice by Judge Teske. D.P. was a gang leader over several gangs. He participated in Project Real Life Y.O.T.C's (PRL) mentoring program for four months. He was a unique case, because PRL obtained custody of him in order to send him to military school. According to follow up reports, he has not been in trouble ever since.
S.W. started receiving help from Project Real Life Y.O.T.C. (PRL) eight years ago. She was 18 years old when she started the program. Her parents' divorce affected her greatly. She had many issues including anger, depression, low self-esteem, lack of motivation and poor performance at school. PRL’s mentoring program helped build S.W. self-confidence. PRL also help S.W. build to her financial credit and prepared her for the work force (resume writing, dress for success program, etc…). Consistent mentoring helped S.W. complete high school successfully and she was accepted to Clayton State University for the fall 2007 semester. In addition, PRL helped S.W. secure a position at Grady Memorial Hospital as an optometrist technician. S.W. is now 25 years and serves as PRL mentor. PRL is currently helping S.W. purchase her first home.
