Hello fellow YPS members,
Welcome to our third e-newsletter issue! We hope you find them to be informative, resourceful and fun!
Well, we’re back and it’s time to share some of the exciting things we have accomplished since our March newsletter and to let you know we have a fun Thank You Celebration with complimentary food and drinks exclusively for YPS members on the way!
First and foremost, we welcomed new names and faces to the group. We are now at 76 United Way Young Philanthropists members! See the “Member News” section for official shout-outs.
As the fiscal year ends, we have a lot for which to be proud. In addition to launching our signature project, “the Piggy Bank” at Walter Bracken Elementary School, YPS members have done a great job this year getting out and being active in a number of events and volunteer projects we have had. We closed one of our most successful outreach events at Commonwealth and added more than 5 members and have several more that we are hoping will join YPS before June 30th. Just in time for the new fiscal year, we were also able to name a new YPS Director, Mr. Jason Soto. All in all it has been a great year! As we look to the next year, how do we build on what we have accomplished? We continue to encourage all YPS members to get involved. We are currently looking for members to step into new roles within the executive committees. There are several committees looking for some new members. The YPS membership is a young, talented group; please join a committee and help steer us to new levels in our coming year. We are also currently seeking applicants for a Vice-Chair as Jody Belsick assumes the Co-Chair position with James Arnold and as Dean Elyacoubi ends his Co-Chair responsibilities. Many thanks for the leadership Dean. If you are an executive member and interested in the Vice-Chair position please fill out the application Here and submit it to JasonS@uwsn.com
