YMWIC August 2023 Newsletter: It Takes a Village of Supporters to Deliver a Year of YMWIC Programming
Quote of the Month
“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character — that is the goal of true education.”
Message from Our CEO
Greetings, YMWIC Supporters:
We have wrapped up another very successful Summer Enrichment Program and are pleased to have provided structured learning activities for students to stay connected to academics during summer vacation in engaging, hands-on and exciting ways.
We are especially thankful for our university partners! Saint Vincent College hosted YMWIC high school and middle school Scholars for yet another exceptional residential Science Retreat. We also hosted our six-week summer Upward Bound Program on the campus of West Chester University of Pennsylvania (WCUPA) for the Coatesville and Upper Darby School District Scholars. Both of these partner institutions provided invaluable learning content and resources for our Scholars.
Excitedly, we have planned and are now ready to launch the YMWIC 2023-2024 Program Year! We have built on the successes of our previous 13 years and incorporated lessons learned into this year’s programming as we expand our reach to provide opportunities to new Scholars. We are consistently improving and progressing as we grow. We call on you, our university and corporate partners and community advocates, to gear up and join us for all the transformative opportunities and learning activities planned this Program Year. Our continued success is not possible without your input and ideas as well as your financial and volunteer support.
For those who have not yet committed to being a YMWIC Partner, we encourage you to consider investing your time, talent or making a financial donation to YMWIC. Your support of our programming allows YMWIC to positively impact and strengthen our families and communities. Please contact me if you would like to discuss becoming a valued member of our team.
With immense gratitude,
