Quote of the Month
“Motivation is what gets you started. Commitment is what keeps you going.”
Message from Our CEO
Hello, YMWIC Supporters:
Spring is traditionally a time of renewal and new beginnings. YMWIC Foundation staff and volunteers are imbued with a deeper commitment and passion to our Scholars and organization as we continue moving forward with vigor and enthusiasm.
Earlier this month, we hosted our second live event this program year, the 11th Annual Science Expo, which was a huge success! Scholars, their families and YMWIC staff were all thrilled to once again see each other in person. We are currently planning our third live event, the 12th Annual Scholarship and Awards Banquet at the Valley Forge Sheraton Hotel on May 26, 2022. I invite you to join us; become a valued sponsor in our event celebrating success!
This year’s Banquet is special for two reasons. First and foremost, we are expecting another great post-pandemic experience with this year’s live event! Second, we will host the Inaugural Alumni Retreat, which was initially planned to occur two years ago at our 10th Annual Scholarship Banquet but was postponed due to the pandemic. We have invited all YMWIC Alumni to participate in enrichment activities including interviewing skills, financial literacy, career development, and more.
We are also in the planning stages of our Annual Summer Experiences. We will host STEAM and Language Arts Camps for elementary and middle school Scholars in at least six of our partner school district locations and the Upward Bound Summer Program for Coatesville Scholars in high school.
We are very excited about the new Philadelphia Chapter of YMWIC. Our partnership with the Philadelphia School District looks quite promising as we work very closely with Philadelphia School District administration on the new Philadelphia chapter.
Our Scholars and Alumni are extremely thankful for all the support and generosity from the community. If you have an interest in joining our Partners, Sponsors, and Volunteers, we hope you will consider making a contribution or volunteering in support of our mission to impact our future leaders and tomorrow’s workforce.
