By MARISSA ORTEGA-WELCH – JUNE 16, 2017

NPR – Latino USA reporter, Marissa Ortega-Welch, interviews a young man who has stepped up to the plate to help his girlfriend raise her son from a different father.

The young couple is another success story from Felton’s Hilltop High School for pregnant and parenting teens in the Mission district of San Francisco. The clip is the remarkable story of “A,” who chose to leave the inner circle of a local gang to pursue and create a better life for himself and the lives of his girlfriend and her son Luis.
