James Hooten

James Hooten felt he hadn't accomplished much in life before graduating from YouthBuild Louisville, part of a national program that helps young people earn their high school diplomas or equivalencies while learning new skills and helping their communities. YouthBuild Louisville was featured on an episode of the KET documentary series "Dropping Back In." Hooten shares his experience with YouthBuild and how it helped him become a business owner and role model for his children.
