Happy New Year! As we embark on 2024, I want to express my deepest gratitude to each of you. Your dedicated support has been the driving force behind our success. Reflecting on 2023, a year marked by transformative strides, I am profoundly proud to share with you the positive impact we have had on our future leaders:
- Our programs and external activities positively impacted over a thousand youths.
- The Empowering Future Leaders program doubled in participants and continues to grow as we secure additional funding.
- Program activities now include cultural and health & wellness experiences such as Operas, Musicals, STEAM and Mindfulness education, and nutritional organic lifestyles.
- Our services now extend to youths on our waiting list and program participants’ family members when possible (Angel Tree, etc.)
As we look forward to 2024, our team will continue this momentum with renewed enthusiasm and ambition. The future holds exciting challenges and opportunities, and I am confident we will continue to achieve greater heights with your support.
I wish you and your families a joyful, prosperous New Year!
