Sister Jerome launches program to help inner city kids with post secondary education

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - A program launched in Youngstown will assist inner-city kids to remain in college or technical school and graduate.

A large crowd of supporters were on hand to help kick-off the program called "Sister Jerome's Kids."

The energy behind the idea is Sister Jerome Corcoran who is a local legend for her dedication to helping the poor.

"Really, in every community in the whole country there should be small programs like this. If everybody takes one poor kid in college, that would change our economy," said Sister Jerome.

The program does not pay tuitions, but offers the financial assistance needed to keep young students from dropping out. It also provides mentoring and guidance.
