Tutoring, mentoring, volunteering all three of these words describe Joselyn Logan’s childhood. Being the oldest sibling of three, Joselyn always found herself in the role of helping and nurturing others. Not only was she always willing to lend a hand as a child, she was intellectually inclined. Because of these two traits, Joselyn mentored students, tutored her peers, and was always quick to volunteer at church and at school.
Fast forward into the future, Joselyn, a wife and mother of 3 hasn’t let go of her passion to help others. She is a member of Kingdom City Church where she serves as a Youth Advisor. As a foster mom for the last 5 years, Joselyn discovered her true calling and gift. On her journey as a foster mom, Joselyn was given the opportunity to get an inside look at the foster care system of Georgia, and an up-close look at the many challenges foster care moms and dads face. This definitely pulled at Joselyn’s heart strings. She was then given a vision; and after much hard work and perseverance, Teen Empowerment Network was birthed.
