I am a senior in highschool, in Evansville Indiana. I have been apart of youth resources for seven years. Because of this amazing program I have grown my leadership skills immensely. I have learned to have confidence in myself, work well with others, and met peers and mentors who will support me and encourage me to be the best version of myself. Through YR, I have gained a large network through community service and have been given the unique opportunity to make an impact on my community. Through this service, I have been able to give back to the community that has done so much for me. Youth resources is a home away from home that allows for students to connect with peers across the city, while also learning to be better people, and grow through servant leadership. Youth Resources has taught me that you do not have to be an adult to make an impact on your community, and that when people work together, they can make a enormous impact! I would not be the person I am today without youth resources and will forever be thankful for the positive impact that they have had on my life.
What is YR Day?
YR Day is a 24-hour online party and fundraising event for YR and the people who make YR possible (that’s you). Whether you’re a student, alumni, parent, volunteer or just a fan with a special place in your heart for YR - this celebration is for you!
Now, you might be asking, “If YR Day is a celebration for me, then why am I being asked to give?”
The truth is, the life changing programs that YR provides to area youth are largely dependent on private support. So while celebrating YR’s present and past is definitely worthwhile, it’s also our responsibility to look ahead to future students. Their YR experiences are not yet guaranteed, which is why we ask for your help.
