Meet the New BYP Members of 2013-2014 School Year Program!

This year we welcome 10 new youth to the School Year Program. After having successfully completed a summer term and six weeks with BYP, we decided to gage the youth on the following questions:

1) What has been your favorite memory with BYP thus far?

2) What do you hope to accomplish with BYP this school year?

This is what they had to say!
