Meet Jocelyn Kinloch
Jocelyn Kinloch is another success story of how Helping Hands
offers programs that impacts the lives of others. Jocelyn’s
mother learned of YEP (Youth Empowerment Program) while
participating in Helping Hands’ GC3 program as she was
working to improve her employment skills and opportunities.
After discussions with her mother and Career Coach Natasha
Smith, Jocelyn chose to join YEP as she prepared to complete
high school and further her education.
Jocelyn wrote, “I am currently a freshman at Francis Marion University majoring
in Nursing and Health Administration with a minor in Physiology. I am a YEP
veteran after participating in the program during my senior year at Waccamaw
High School in 2021.
“The Youth Empowerment Program plays a huge role in the person I am today.
During my freshmen year I find myself frequently using the four core values of
MEPS (mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual). With the mentorship of Mrs.
Tasha, Coach Teon, and Mr. Ronald, YEP is a program that I will take with me
throughout my life.”
