Brayan R. | Rosenzweig Branch
Brayan started attending the Rosenzweig Branch when he was in second grade, and says his life has changed for the better ever since. When he was young, he often struggled with controlling his emotions and expressing how he was feeling. Club staff patiently supported him through these challenges and gave him opportunities to understand his emotions and tools to make good choices. Brayan noticed that Rosenzweig Branch staff always took a genuine interest in how he was doing, which helped him feel safe to open up at the Club and make new friends. He has participated in a number of Club programs, with sports – especially basketball! – and Teens Take the Lead being most memorable.
Brayan is a sophomore at Glenview College Prep, with goals to attend college and open a mechanic shop. Outside the Club he enjoys volunteering at his school, and he recently started an internship at the Footprint Center through BGCAZ’s teen workforce development program, AZYouthforce.
