Justin,Fundraiser BVS Position

JUSTIN DOMINGOS
Justin needs help raising funds for the Brethren Volunter Services' national program and a placement in the San Diego area. 
http://www.brethren.org/bvs/
 This program would provide Justin with an exceptional opportunity to be in a program that would start his professional career, provide him with free housing, and give him the life and professional skills development that would benefit him now.

Justin was born in Nigeria. At the age of six he moved to Germany and he stayed in his foster parents home, Joan and Bernardo Domingos, for 5 years.  He was later adopted in 2009 by his foster parents. Justin was placed in a special needs education school and his adopted mother, Joan worked hand in hand with the CPS in Bonn - Germany, social services and therapist to ensure that Justin had the best of care and education. Justin attended special educational schools from elementary school through 8th grade and moved with his mom and his brothers to the USA.  
 
Justin’s school work has progressed enormously since he moved out to San Diego in 2014. Justin was honored in his school (San Diego High School) with the Excellence in Physical Education Award by Dr. Carmen Garcia in June 2016. In June 2017, Justin graduated from San Diego High School’s School of Science and Technology. Together with his school counselor and support from his family, he was able to gain admission into San Diego's City College to study Computer Science. Justin also speaks English and German language proficiently understands French, Creole and some Spanish. Justin is a role model and father figure for his three younger brothers and friends and an enormous support for his foster mother who was a victim of human trafficking and continues to struggle with the aftermath of being a survivor. If Justin is able to raise enough money for this program, then he will not only be able to improve upon his own life and personal skills, but he will also be able to  provide more substantial support for his family, friends, and African community in the San Diego area.
