In September, 2016 freshman business major Dominique Beckham and her friend Kaya Jones joined DonCARES of 3 Philadelphia as volunteer mentors. Dominique is originally from Pittsburgh and is very involved on campus. As a consistent and passionate mentor for inner-city youth, Dominique uses her knowledge of dance from her high school experience to give advice to younger students. After graduation Dominique hopes to start her own non-profit to help underprivleged girls find mentors. In November, 2016 Dominique and Kaya participated in the Lambda Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi’s annual Shimmy Like A Nupe. We are lucky to have you both!
