On June 8th, we held our first Celebration at Mill No. 5 in Lowell, MA for our first group of 26 kids,
who completed their first 12 projects and touched over 1,000 people!

They spoke eloquently about their projects, Channel sang two songs beautifully and Jasmine, Kelina, Valerie and Charlyna performed a fantastic routine they had choreographed for a very enthusiastic audience.

Thank you to Mill No. 5 for donating such the most perfect and beautiful space for this event!

Thank you to all of you who contributed time, talents and funds this spring to make this milestone possible!

Jasmine
Valerie, Kelina, Jasmine & Charlyna (L-R), 6th-7th Grade, Lawrence, MA
This group of energetic girls who participate in the Youth Development Organization's after-school programs have a passion for dance, gymnastics and cheering, so they set their minds on leading their own YDO program for younger girls.  They applied for a grant to cover new gym mats and uniforms and taught 8-12 girls in K-3rd grade for 6 weeks.  They wanted to give these girls the chance to take a class that they might not be able to afford to take otherwise and stepped into their roles as teachers with positive energy, kindness and patience.  What surprised them was the respect the girls gave them and their determination to master new skills.
Luis
Luis, 6th Grade, Lowell, MA
Luis applied for a grant to cover materials needed to start a rubberband jewelry-making business.  His plan was to create many pieces over the course of the spring and then give two special ones to friends of his who had helped him stay focused academically in 5th grade.  His generous spirit came out so naturally, and he ended up giving away many more pieces to other people who meant a lot to him.  He made this board and proudly displayed his work at the celebration.  His business is off to a great start!
Vivian
Vivian & Mariah, 6th Grade, Lowell, MA
