This caring woman decided to make a difference in these youthful lives by coordinating tutoring programs to help keep these kids in school,” Kelley Chatman, Mentoring Coordinator of ABC Learn. “This early success developed into today’s multi-faceted programming that goes beyond basic education and tutoring to also focus on building self-esteem through increased academics and life skills.
