The school year is now in full swing! Can you believe September is almost over? We are beyond excited to have the classrooms filled and to experience the year fully in person. With all that has changed, we know it has been difficult for the students to get back into a normal routine. We have worked tirelessly to make our programs this year exciting, to celebrate the fresh start of a new semester. There is nothing more meaningful than reconnecting with the children and families of our community. We look forward to continuing to stay connected and providing enrichment opportunities for the students of central Indiana.
Your continued financial support is important to our organization at this time, given the staffing shortages and transitions that are taking place. The need has been growing and we are working harder than ever to double down on our financial assistance funding and academic support programming. Donations directly help us provide the most impactful experiences for the students and families of AYS. All donations go directly toward improving our program curriculum and providing affordable fees for our AYS families. The happiness and satisfaction of our community is the center of everything we do. Help us to create a meaningful experience for every family in our programs by donating today.
The team members at our sites are responsible for making our programs possible and ensuring all our programs run smoothly. As we transition back into a normal routine, we are looking to expand our staff. We are specifically engaging college and high school students 16 years and older. This opportunity will give students a chance to give back while also providing an opportunity for them to explore careers in education and youth development. Our children will gain a positive experience from these as well. Having high school and college students will help us fill roles and provide the children with an opportunity to learn, grow and spend time with someone who attended their school. If you or anyone you know is interested in filling the role of Youth Development Associate or Leader, you can learn more about the position and apply here.
We have come such a long way since last year. Your continued support and engagement have helped us continue to provide high quality services to our families. Thank you for being a part of our family and for supporting us while we transition back to our traditional programming.
