Eureka Teen Center
Youth of the Month
Asika Zosel

Asika, a big kid with an even bigger heart. Last year was difficult for Asika. He run away from home and was homeless for a year. Living life on the streets and not attending school, Asika had also strayed away from the Teen Center. With the news of his father passing, Asika decided it was time to reach out to his family and move back home. He enrolled back into school, and started working with his family providing in home care. With his life back on track Asika started attending the Teen Center and has taken on lots of responsibilities. He is a leader in our Keystone Club as well as being one of the most active members in Passport 2 Manhood. He is one of the Peacekeepers here at the Teen Center, a super BIG help during fundraisers and loved by all.
