Honoring those with honors

The Community Youth Development Program subcontracts with community-based organizations to provide services to at-risk youth in zip code areas 75216 & 75217. The International What About the Children Foundation provides a youth employment program, teaching adolescents how to look for, obtain and maintain employment. They also encourage youth to excel in school by hosting a celebration every six weeks after report cards are issued. The names of the honor roll students are announced over the school’s loudspeaker, and the students are invited to a party. Celebrations generate excitement about good grades and simply because the youth want to be recognized. More children are interested in the program, and program participants show a marked improvement in academic achievement. Success in school leads to success in life. Way to go!
