Regina Jackson has made it her mission to invest in the future of children. She has taken on the challenge of molding, and mentoring young people in her hometown of Oakland, CA. Regina believes her biggest challenge is combating hopelessness. When young people don’t have high expectations, they often won’t try. Because she and her staff believe that youth can perform at high levels, they often rise to meet and exceed those expectations.
