Chad McClain is 19-years old and an assistant youth coordinator at YouthGROW in Worcester, MA. Last year, McClain had to tackle a number of financial burdens, and was working 2 jobs, 50 hours a week, to try and bridge the gap. McClain is also an english major in college, and the long work hours took a toll on his grades. He ended up losing his financial aid. "You never know when life is going to hit you with something," he said. "To me, I thought it would never happen and I would get it back immediately." YouthGROW was able to help, teaching McClain how to budget and come up with a game plan. McClain wants to start a fashion magazine at school, and work on his writing.
