Dear Paris- Bourbon County Community,
Come join us at the YMCA on August 6, 2019 from 5:30-7:00 to learn more the YMCA Black Achievers program. We will have pulled pork, chips and fruit provided, as well as Glenn Lundy as a guest speaker.
The YMCA Black Achievers, Nationally known as Achievers, is a college and career readiness program that supports youth through academics, career exploration, and mentoring. This opportunity is open to any student from any background in grades 6-12.
The goals of the program include:
- Improving academic deficiencies and increasing the percentage of students who graduate from high school and go to college
- Helping youth understand and evaluate their life options
- Enhancing the developmental assets in youth
- Establishing meaningful, long-term relationships between program participants and positive adults within the community
Students interested in participating will attend meetings twice a month during the school year with transportation provided by Paris-Bourbon County Schools. These meetings will include visits to colleges, universities, and businesses, as well as other field trips.
We look forward to seeing you on August 6, 2019 from 5:30-7:00 at the Paris-Bourbon YMCA!
