Congratulations, YMCA Academy students on making us proud once again! We received this “thank you” from Free the Children for all of your outstanding work and commitment on social justice and environmental issues.
This year has gone by quickly, but let’s recap and celebrate some of our amazing projects: We Day, Halloween for Hunger, The Vow of Silence, Peace Week, The Good News Newsletter, Greening of the FDC childcare playground, Earth Week, Earth Hour, tree planting, Free Hugs, That’s Not Fair to Me, seeing Dr. Jane Goodall speak, Sasha’s presentation on her work with Free the Children in Kenya, the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup and the Healthy Choices Program with Brickworks!
Whew, it’s been a busy year of doing good, Academy students! You are a shining example of youth committed to social justice – well done!
