Help Amina Overcome Education Costs

Hello Family and Community
Thank you for being here. 

My name is Amina and I am currently enrolled in an advanced standing Social Work program in pursuit of my Masters of Social Work!

Currently I am facing  great financial difficulty due to increasing educational costs. This hardship keeps me from obtaining my official transcript from a previous university, and continuing to schedule courses going forward at my current institution. With these outstanding costs I am unable to provide the services to the youth and communities I love. 

As a Teaching Artist, Counselor, and Facilitator I work with youth from every walk of life. With every opportunity I focus on trauma care for youth in the foster care system, and adjudicated youth. 

With my degree I strive to become a therapist for children, teens, and families, a clinician, and eventually direct a residential program. I am not only passionate about this work, but believe I have been chosen to provide this care, guidance, and engagement. It means the world that you are here to help me care for our youth.

Our youth are brave, intelligent, resilient, loving, and in need of compassionate, devoted and capable providers. I do everything I can to be that person for them everyday.

I know that furthering my education will only empower and energize me to continue developing and improving my skills as a therapeutic resource and youth ally. 

Thank you for your time and consideration. Please donate if you can, and share!

I appreciate you all so, so Much 

Sincerely, 
Amina J-M


Breakdown:

Session Tuition - $1500
(with 8 sessions total)

Obtaining Official Transcript - $3,000

Even with a payment plan they won't release my transcript and I've already had to retake some classes just to continue my education)
