For those of you who may not know, after today, March 29th, I will be leaving my position as Youth Programs Manager at Youth Action Hudson. When I first applied for the Youth Engagement intern position, I had no idea that I was embarking on a five year journey with an organization that would fundamentally change the course of my life and ignite a passion for working with youth.
I am so fortunate to have had the opportunity to work for such an incredible organization, and I will forever be grateful for the knowledge, experience and relationships I have gained over the past five years. I want to sincerely thank the Youth Action Hudson staff, Yvonne and Dana, our board of directors, and the Hudson community as a whole for the support they have given me and the youth that I have had the pleasure to work with.
To all of the students I have had the opportunity to work with over the past five years - thank you. Thank you for allowing me to work alongside you to create change in the Hudson community. Thank you for igniting a passion for youth development and helping to shape the first few years of my professional career. Thank you proving that youth are compassionate, dedicated and powerful leaders. Thank you for demonstrating what an invaluable asset youth are in the community. You are all such inspiring young men and women and I am so excited to continue to watch you grow as leaders, create new programs, and pursue your passions.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
p.s. Make good life choices!
