My Experiences with youth challenge were wonderful, the memories I have of YC can't really be expressed by words, what I can truly say is I love everyone that I met when I was there - and to also say that they will always have a place in my heart. Love you all Chaz.E Martin.

I have been involved with YC since 2002. Since that time,I have been able to make many new friends(participant and volunteer) and try many new things(like sports my mom would've never let me try otherwise.)I was apart of the Christmas show for Dance and Drama,and I would never have had the confidence to try out for my school play. At YC, I golf,I boat,I ski,I run,I play baseball,I skate,I swim,and many other activities I can't even fit into my scedule! Just about every day they have SOMETHING going on! I have no reservations about the organization itself. Sure, there were times I was too busy for programs,and some volunteers seemed more experienced than others, but overall, it'd be wrong to complain about such a blessing,especially since these things are never their fault. Speaking as a teenager with a mild disability,participating in activities has become a real self-esteem booster. I am no longer the needy one needing the most attention and help,I am just like a regular kid! YC has made me proud and thankful of who I am. Everyone makes you feel welcome not in a cheesy, but a very genuine way! If you are interested in any way in getting involved with this organization, we would love to have you! I hope to stay involved for many years to come. Everyone's a winner at YC!:) Thank you so much YC!!
