I've been involved many years with MTYP, as a participant, a volunteer, and an employee. In all aspects, the program played a vital role in teaching me important life lessons, preparing me for the future, and supporting me when most needed. I don't think I can look back at my life and see anything that MTYP has not touched. Its shows are always professional quality, but still an educational and fun environment for the students; and by choosing to perform a rich variety of shows, the messages are always moving. The one drawback is that word has not spread farther.
