YMWIC April 2022 Newsletter: Creating Memorable Learning Experiences for Our Scholars
Quote of the Month
“When you learn, teach; when you get, give.”
Message from Our CEO
Hello, YMWIC Supporters:
Since April is National Volunteer Month, we would like to celebrate our YMWIC volunteers and express our sincere appreciation for the thousands of hours they commit to serving and supporting our programs. Our volunteers understand the importance of giving back and making a difference in the lives of others. Volunteering also benefits the volunteer in countless ways by decreasing the risk of depression, reducing stress, increasing social interaction, broadening support networks by making new friends, providing mental health boosts, increasing physical activity, lowering blood pressure, and just having fun. We thank our volunteers for making a difference by giving their time and talents to support YMWIC!
Our Scholars participate in four Community Service activities annually. The Community Service Program helps our Scholars understand the importance and value of service and giving back to support those less fortunate members in our communities. Developing civic-minded young men and women who are eager to serve is a goal of YMWIC Community Service events.
At the end of this academic year, we have 15 graduating seniors who will be honored at our Annual Scholarship and Awards Banquet. Each will be given a scholarship they have earned by meeting or exceeding established criteria of varying amounts to attend the college of their choice. It is because of you–our committed partners, donors, sponsors, and volunteers–we are able to deliver and provide essential resources and programs that support our mission, and prepare our graduates for the rigors of higher education and careers.
We welcome you to join us in preparing tomorrow’s STEM professionals by volunteering your time, your talents or making a financial donation to YMWIC in support of our programs and scholarships. Please contact me directly to discuss your involvement.
