WELCOME to June 2013!!!
Summer is here!! I hope you can feel the excitement. Not just the excitement about school being out for the summer but excitement to learn new things. This break time away gives you the freedom to learn about things that interest you. No more structured learning. You can go to the library and pick out several books on the same topic. Before you know it, you may be an expert. Select any topic...trucks, flowers, the brain, anything!!! Use the summer as a way to develop new skills and interests, instead of a time when you go brain dead. Stay active physically and mentally to ensure you use your free time well.
We will be using the time to provide educational videos for you. We won't be sleeping the summer away and neither can you.
This is our sixth year offering a college scholarship and the deadline has passed for the Gwendolyn V. Waite College Scholarship and the Future Trailblazers of America Award.
We will announce all winners on June 30, 2013 on this website and on our Twitter and Facebook pages. Please be patient as we go through this selection period. It is not easy because many of our young people are doing great things.
Don't miss out on a thing!! Please follow us on Facebook, Twitter (@youthsurvivors), and subscribe to our channel on YouTube (search “YSFI”). You will be able to follow our journey, get the latest updates regarding education, employment opportunities, scholarships, development tools, and family fun activities.
