Jamarr's Story

From grand theft auto to trained auto technician

Jamarr P. came to Brothers United as a 16-year old expectant father with a long rap sheet and without a high-school diploma. He knew he had to do something to get his life on track and responded to a Pathway flyer offering GED classes When he came to Pathway Inc. he discovered Brothers United and decided to join the program. From the day he started, Jamarr made a commitment and stuck by it. He’s attended 78 hours of curriculum without missing a single day, not even after spending an entire night with his co-parent in the hospital.

He is now a proud father to 1-month old Jasmine and a supportive co-parent. He is currently employed at a local McDonald’s through Brothers United who assisted him with soft skills training.  and  expects to complete his GED in the near future, after which he will enroll in the Auto Technician Program at Owens Community College. Jamarr knows the path ahead won’t always be easy, but he now has the skills and the vision to keep navigating it and moving in the right direction.
