Meet Patrick

Patrick is a young man from California who is helping lead the charge for college options along the west coast.

He traveled to Portland to participate in a mapping session with other young adults who aspire to go to college. Together, they created a visual depiction of their hopes and dreams.

The following day, the youths presented their map to the Think College West Coast Coalition. Members of the coalition discussed how to enable young adults achieve their dreams of secondary education and inclusive employment.
