Expectations for the Year

Our first day of the school-year program has started! On October 9th the youth were asked to flesh out some of their expectations for the upcoming year. Below are some common themes that were in each of their responses in some form or another:

Schoolwork

Connecting with others

Community

Learning

Food

These common themes and the responses below, taken directly from the youth, accentuate what BYP strives to achieve day in and day out:

“[Continue to have] a positive presence in the community”

“Exceed the good group of members we previously had”

“Expect it to be fun and educational at the same time”

“Doing what I am supposed to do”

“I expect to [earn] respect”

“Having great adventures, trying and learning new things”

Staff members agree that helping the youth make decisions about their future is one of the most rewarding aspects of our work. The youth will be the ones to continue the revitalization of 15104 and we will do all that we can to aid in their effort. We are all looking forward to making this year the best one yet and (hopefully) getting to go sled riding!
