Yosef Kassim: Young Explorer

posted Jun 4, 2017, 5:32 PM by Joanna Gillen

Name: Yosef Kassim

Class: 818


Yosef is part of the  Law Enforcement Explorers program. This program provides young men and women with an introduction to a career in law enforcement or a related field in the criminal justice system. In May, Yosef was able to spend the weekend camping in Staten Island with other Explorers and was able to experience the training needed to become an officer, as well as the pressures officers face when on the job. A full day competition had Yosef facing many challenges and working with teams to solve various different scenarios. Yosef feels he has learned so much about teamwork, leadership, and discipline from this trip and really hopes to become an officer one day. We are very proud of him and his dedication to following his dream!
