August: We were excited to be able to take our newly elected YUCA Cabinet Leaders for their training retreat right before school started. Our training retreat was key for staff to have the time needed to train and develop our youth leaders to prepare them for their leadership term. We trained our youth leaders in the areas of budget and finances, event planning, communication skills, public speaking, and team building activities and workshops. The retreat allows for us to get to know one another and bond as a team through trainings, meal prep, dinner times, and recreational activities.
September: LHTP tutoring staff and directors have been working hard to keep our students studying and doing their homework on a daily basis. Our parents and teachers have been relying on LHTP’s after school tutoring services to help the children and students to better understand their various subject areas and to be able to confidently finish their homework assignments. Our ratio of tutor to students in our classrooms has been so beneficial in providing the highest quality of tutoring and to be able to give the attention needed for each of our students.
October: Our JYC & YUCA youth club members have been excited to be able to have more In person community events for this school year. We were able to bring back our Beach Clean-up & Mixer event. The last time we hosted this event was in 2019 and happens to be one of the most memorable for our youth. It was a fun filled day at Cabrillo Beach. For some of our youth club members, it was their first time ever at the beach. They were so amazed by the beautiful views of the palm trees, ocean and waves, sand, and even found some seashells. We also had a full day of activities of relay races, lunch, and beach clean-up contest. They had a blast!!! Also this month, our youth club members participated in the “Making Strides” Breast Cancer Walk. We had fun cheering on the families and supporting such an important and great cause. Coming up next will be our UC Irvine College Tour and Halloween Themed meetings.
