I’ve attached the information below about Y.E.L.L. (Youth Engaging in Leadership & Learning)
Y.E.L.L. (Youth Engaging in Leadership & Learning) and the San Antonio Youth Summit (SAYS) brings the community together to enlighten our youth by challenging their minds and providing them the necessary tools to become successful leaders. By instilling in them strong cultural, moral and social values, SAYS empowers them to become the VOICE for a better tomorrow. Our non-profit status is still pending but Big Brother's Big Sister's serves as our fiscal agent. For more information you can go to our website: www.sayouthsummit.org.
The mission of Youth Engaging in Leadership and Learning (Y.E.L.L.) is to service the Youth of our community through volunteers and donations by local businesses (public and private), and by providing various fundraisers to enable the Youth to engage annually in a Youth Summit full of activities, learning, and education.
The annual summit will offer the opportunity to discuss the important issues that affect the youth of our city. Students will take an in-depth look at these issues and draft a Youth Agenda for our city with a list of actionable items and next steps on these issues. Additionally, students attending the Summit will have the opportunity to attend workshops and training sessions on topics ranging from applying to college to managing their finances. Throughout the day, students will enjoy a "Future Fair" featuring booths from employers who will have the opportunity to educate our leaders of tomorrow on preparing for the monumental task of replacing our retiring workforce. Colleges/Universities, camps, volunteer opportunities and city departments that serve the youth will also be available to talk with the students.
The Youth Commission greatly appreciates the work that you and your business do in our communities. We sincerely hope that you will continue to join us in this crucial opportunity to engage and empower the young people of our city. With the drop-out rate at 50% in parts of San Antonio and with the state of our national economy, it is imperative that we invest in our young people to secure our cities and our nation's future prosperity. Only with your support can this opportunity for students be possible. For more information you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We need the support of our community to make our dream of helping the youth of San Antonio become our next generation of leaders! Please visit our website at www.sayouthsummit.com to gain a better understanding of our initiative.
