Trainee Profile: Shaka

Shaka dropped out of high school and after a few brushes with the law realized that his life was heading in the wrong direction. A friend introduced him to the Challenge Program because he thought it would provide the positive support and guidance Shaka needed to get his life back on track. Shaka quickly completed his GED and gained useful experience in residential construction working on the rehabs at 22nd & Carter Streets. He is currently studying criminal justice at Delaware State University and plans to pursue a law degree.
