How did a law-breaking, heroin-using, 9th-grade dropout go on to earn two Masters degrees and a Ph.D? By learning about trust and community at a critical time in her life. At the Delancey Street Foundation in San Francisco, Teri Delane received the support she desperately needed, and the tools to succeed. It made such an impact on her that she decided to give back. “My heart and soul has always been with youth…I know that if you get in early and really work on them and help them learn to trust, they can change,” she says. Based on her experience and further research, Delane started Life Learning Academy, a school for kids with histories of failure, truancy, arrest, and substance abuse. It boasts a 99% graduation rate with 85% of students going on to college. Find out more about how it transforms lives through trust.
