Darryl McDavid is the Admissions Specialist at Year Up.

“If movements such as the civil rights and smaller grassroots movements have exemplified anything it’s the power of a community response, which is a large part of why I’d like to be a part of the Surge movement. Because I believe there are issues affecting communities of color that can’t be changed unless we all do our parts to push these changes forward. Additionally, I believe education is one of the most important steps in empowering others and a lack of education prevents individuals from realizing their full potential. Lastly, I’m ready to stop watching from the sidelines and to take action and play a role in opening doors to opportunities for young people of color that have been closed for all the wrong reasons. ”
