This profile of a graduate of our Center for Advanced Technologies engineering program show how Focus: HOPE offered this single mom a path to security and stability. Yemi Kinni-Olusanyin came to this country with a four-month-old child and no clear vision for her future. Through Focus: HOPE, she earned a degree in engineering and now provides a comfortable life for her and her son. She is one of nearly 12,000 graduates of Focus: HOPE's education and job training programs. We estimate that our graduates have generated $1.2 billion in earnings since our first job training program started in 1981.
