2017 Outstanding Former Teen Parent Award

Joseph Yusuf is a 22-year-old junior at Howard University and is pursuing his Bachelor’s degree in Media, Journalism, and Film with emphasis on Audio Production. Working with organizations like the Community Anti-Drug Coalition (CADCA), the Latin American Youth Center, and Teens Run DC, Joseph has made a positive and lasting impact on his community by helping youth through leadership, mentoring, and prevention. Upon graduation, Joseph plans to use his experiences from school and the knowledge he has gained from life to produce and collaborate with musicians and artists. His ultimate vision is to start his own program and open music studios around the country to serve the youth in America. The program would be designed for youth who have a strong passion to produce, rap, sing, or write music. Joseph envisions his studios as a safe place for youth to express their creativity and to work with others in the process. Outside of work and academics, he’s spending time with his 4-year-old daughter Jakayla. Joseph’s motto and approach to life is “Peace, Love, and Positivity.” Read more…
