BK non-profit teaches life lessons for a better future

BROOKLYN - Confidence, discipline and professionalism are part of the three life lessons being taught by a Brooklyn non-profit that's getting young people on their feet.

Opportunities for a Better Tomorrow offers several programs to help its students tap into what it calls the keys to success. Donavan Soria says the group helped him turn his life around and land a job through the young adult internship program.

The organization is giving people until next Friday to sign up for the young adult internship program. It also offers several other opportunities, including GED help, out of its Thornton Street office in Bushwick.
