Congratulations to the YATC Class of 2023! It’s hard to believe that nine months have passed since you first became a YATC student.

Everyone at YATC is proud of you and we want to encourage you to keep striving for all that you dream of.

Our Founder Jim Moran believed that YATC could give important tools to young people just like yourselves who want to change their lives. His goal and the mission of our program is to support YOU on your journey. Make good choices, keep a positive mindset and remember that YATC is here to give you guidance, help or even a pat on the back whenever you need it. Please keep in touch!

Wherever the road leads you next, the technical know-how, academic knowledge and life skills that you gained at YATC will always be valuable. You have the keys to open new doors in your life. Make your future something you are really proud of. We will be cheering you on!
