Executive Director Message
Dear Friends of YATC:
Happy fall to all of our good friends and supporters! YATC is off to a great start this year. This class is typical for YATC in several ways -- 30 male students, average age of 19 with a variety of academic histories who primarily live in Broward County. Although these students look "typical," I believe that as we get to know them better and work with them individually, they will each achieve some very special things
I am happy to share news of a new initiative that began earlier this year is through the YATC Board of Directors. The Board is carefully reviewing the YATC program overall to ensure students and graduates receive the very best we can offer. Five focus areas have been determined and a committee assigned to each: Academic / Technical Program, Scholarships, Field Trips, Organizational Finances and Job Placement. With our dedicated Board members evaluating these aspects of the student and graduate experience, we hope to identify areas of YATC's greatest strengths, as well as areas that can be better developed.
This is just the kind of planning and preparation that our Founder Jim Moran would expect of us. I appreciate the efforts of the Board, Advisory Board, our tutors and volunteers who all come together to make YATC the best it can be! Thank you all.
