A second chance for a better tomorrow

“I’m inspired by these kids every time I visit the school. They have the ability to succeed in life, but circumstances prevent them from achieving. We give them the break they need. And they know that they can always count on us. If times get tough and they need a hand they know where to call. These kids and their families are always part of our YATC family.”
