Health for DC Teens

Through his Blueprint, Dominique empowered African American teens through programs that exposed them to a better life and career opportunities through education. He provided current community-based educational opportunities about health, finance, careers, and striving for strong academic performance and scholarships to such youth, increasing their enrollment rates in college. He also worked to tackle the rising issue of HIV/AIDS amongst the African American population with the help of YP4, Choice USA, and other local DC organizations through mentorship programs for teens that educated them on their reproductive and civil rights and bridge the the gap between DC African American youth and educational opportunities. To achieve this, he hosted a health fare for DC high school students in collaboration with Howard University organizations to promote healthy living.
