Is it just us, or is this school year flying by? We are already in our fourth week of academic and vocational training!
Now that students have had a chance to settle into their routines and responsibilities, we held a Community Night at the school last night so that our students could share their YouthBuild experience with family, friends, and supporters. In breakout sessions, students and community members sat together to talk about the changes they’ve witnessed or experienced so far this year, and how community members can support our students as the year continues.
We loved hearing from our community members about the difference they’ve observed in students’ motivation, energy, and passion for learning since arriving at YouthBuild. It was also a joy to meet the parents, grandparents, children and siblings who have inspired our students to embark on this journey towards a more positive future. Thank you for joining us last night to support YouthBuild students! We look forward to seeing you at future community events – and graduation!
