|Remembering Honor is a two week summer program for middle and high school youth to learn about diverse American history and literature. The program strives to enrich academic pursuits, encourage leadership and build a deep sense of self-respect and community attachment.
The importance of books and reading is the foundation of Remembering Honor. Each day the students participate in team building activities and receive a lesson on positive diverse role models. It is an atmosphere of fun and positive interaction, where books and prizes are dispersed daily. The program takes place every summer at the YWCA.
To inspire self-determination and aspirations in youth, as we establish community, instill purpose and educate; to nurture our children as they unfold their past, live well today and design their own bright futures.
ACTIVITIES AND LESSONS:
Each day our students are provided with a nutritious lunch. Remembering Honor students participate in team building activities, thought provoking discussion groups and lessons on positive, diverse role models. Program staff has created an atmosphere of fun and positive interaction. Students receive door prizes and books are given out each day based on the daily lesson or presentation. Our goal is to help enrich our student’s academic pursuits, encourage leadership and instill a deep sense of personal and community respect.
