I want to be a leader
Currently a college student, Jarvis Johnson knows that despite the degree he attains, his main goal is to be a leader. The creator the Leadership in Action program, as well as being a mentor for the Y-Achievers, Jarvis is the example of what can happen when paying it forward truly pays off.
Starting with Y-Achievers when he was in middle school, Jarvis experienced the tough love, discipline and reward of working with his own mentor, Mr. H. (John Hafford), who inspires him to lead a positive life and work with the same kind of kid that he used to be. He hopes to stick with the group of young Y-Achievers until they become mentors like himself.
“Start with where you’re at, but don’t be average. Reach for your goal and then take it just a little bit farther.”
