Editorial: Youth United Way

Wednesday, May 21, 2008

High school students from Central, Jackson, Notre Dame Regional, Saxony Lutheran and Scott City announced recently at an annual banquet that they had raised more than $15,303 and awarded $9,920 in Youth United Way grants. The money will go toward projects addressing teen pregnancy and substance-abuse prevention for youths.

The Youth United Way program is intended to make teens aware of community needs and encourage them to develop leadership skills and encourage them to volunteer. This is a great program. Congratulations to all of the young people involved.

I had the pleasure of working with some of the kids from Youth United Way who did some volunteering for Safe Harbor Animal Sanctuary. This is a wonderful group of kids!!
