We had the privilege of working with Begin the Transformation providing Partial Planning Services. Begin the Transformation is non-profit organization dedicated to eradicating teenage pregnancy, through education, spiritual and community support. This event took place at The Grand Chalet in Wayne, NJ.
This event brought together teen parents and former teen parents who are prominent members of our community and who have transformed their lives by weathering the storm of adversity to becoming successful men and women in our society.
Dr. Monica Burton of the East Orange School District gave the Keynote Address. She shared her story of how life was as a teen mother and how she overcame many obstacles to become who she is today.
George Darby, a former teen parent also had the opportunity to share his story as a teen father.
Both Burton and Darby received the Transformation Award given by Begin the Transformation, Inc. for their life accomplishments and service to the community.
It was a great evening of food, fellowship, inspiration, dancing and AWESOME raffle prizes!
I look forward to seeing what is in store for this organization.
