The end of the term for our YouthBuild Corpsmembers is finally here. Last Friday, this year’s YouthBuild program concluded its nine-month cycle with a graduation ceremony for the Class of 2012.
The MHYC family is incredibly proud of our YouthBuild Corpsmembers. This term, 22 Corpsmembers have earned their GEDs, 2 earned high school diplomas, 20 are moving on to higher education opportunities, and combined have served over 10,000 hours in service to our community. They have earned countless certifications in their field and we are pleased to see nine Corpsmembers already hard at work in new jobs. We are of course very happy to see these young men and women move on to bigger and better things, but at the same time, we are sad to see our family and friends leave.
We wish our graduates the best as they move on with their careers and educations and we know we will be seeing them again before too long. As the saying goes, “Once in YouthBuild, Always in YouthBuild.”
Below is a video featuring the highlights of this year’s graduation ceremony. Take a moment to celebrate their journey with us and be sure to leave a comment wishing our graduates well for the future.
