“Adolescence is tough; I know that from experience. The least I can do is help them have an easier time with it.”

“ I began volunteering at KYC shortly after talking with some local youth in a restaurant. They remarked that it’s one thing to be good in certain subjects like math and science at school, and quite another to see what options that gives them for the future. I grew up in a small community. I have turned strengths like this into a career as a scientist. I thought I could, at least, be an example of where certain interests can take you, and maybe helpful for homework too. It turns out they have more questions than I have answers, so I get to learn as well.”

“I been around for quite a few years. I have seen changes in staff, changes in management, changes in volunteers and even the building itself. Best part of being involved with KYC is seeing the impact of you being there has. I have never once volunteered my time. I have invested my time in the youth of this community.”

I came to the KYC six years ago as a 15 year old and know how valuable it is as a resource for young people in our community. I hope it will continue to be an important place for youth for many years to come.”
