"I was having a hard time at school because I missed a bunch of stuff during the shut-down. My tutor Miss Laurie helped me do a lot of reading, so I could catch up. She also made me feel really good, like I could do it. She is so nice to me."

"I had no interest in politics before the Y and Youth & Government. It has empowered me as a leader, and now my main goal in life is to change the lives of others for the better. I would have never considered this a possibility if it wasn’t for the encouraging and inspiring atmosphere of my fellow delegates and advisors in Y&G."

"My husband and I were fighting a lot. We both lost our jobs because of COVID, and we couldn’t figure out how to pay for anything. Thank God for the Y. They had food for everyone. They gave us whole meals, including milk, and bags full of fresh fruit and vegetables. They also helped us figure out the child tax credit and rent relief program. My husband is back to work now, and we are getting back on track. The Y helped keep our family together."
