Report: No school, work for 16 percent of New York youth

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — Hawkins noted that every youth's needs are different — some have grade-school reading levels or trouble at home — and the process can take years.

In Buffalo, 18-year-old Chelsea Kaylor said she could not have gotten her high school equivalency diploma without help from Catholic Charities of Buffalo.

"They did more than just give me my GED, they encouraged me," she said. "They talked to me about my life after my GED and where did I want to go."

Kaylor's son is about to turn 2, and she is finishing her first semester in college with a 4.0 average. Her goal is to become an accountant.

"There was a lot of work, but I did have a lot of support," she said.
