New Broadcasting Camp for Colby who loves to perform

Posted Mar 13, 2018
Colby would spend all day working on creating a news broadcast in groups with other students. This opportunity is great for him to hone his interpersonal skills which are just becoming age appropriate. He would then work on how to broadcast news. This would really help his self-esteem and develop his newly developed interest in performance.

Colby is 13 years old and lives in Charlotte, NC

Colby has been in care for nearly two years. He was abandoned by his mother at 6 months and went into a guardianship situation. His guardian became too ill to care for him. He never met his father. At age 10, he was just alone and upset. He really acted out—3 group homes in the first three months. He went to three foster homes over the next 18 months. He was chronically in trouble at home, school and daycare. Many counted Colby out, but I always saw a nice, sweet, boy who was hurt. He was never violent and often bullied. He came to his last foster home and his life has totally changed. He is the nice, sweet boy I saw. He has had no disciplinary issues at school and made the honor roll for the first time in his life. Colby has never had any outside interests until the last few months. He has become interested in drama and will be in his first play next month. His new foster home wants to adopt him.
