More support for youth programs

I am writing to support afterschool program funding, particularly for the Teen REACH ACE Afterschool Program and Summer Success in Crawford County.  I had the privilege of working in the program where I met some outstanding adult role models and children who grew by leaps and bounds under their tutelage.

Supporters of youth programs keep speaking out

I am writing to request that funding be restored for the Teen REACH/ACE afterschool and Summer Success programs. This program is located in Crawford County and is absolutely essential to at least four small towns in the area.

Student credits career path to Summer Success, afterschool volunteering

This letter is being written in regards to the possible extinction of the Teen REACH funding for the state of Illinois. The ACE afterschool program has had many positive effects not only on me, but on others as well and in more ways than one. I write this in hope that my story can demonstrate just how much of a force for good this program is.

Director, alumni support afterschool/summer programs

Pre-med student credits program for motivation

I am writing this in regards to the proposed eradication of Teen REACH funding for Illinois. To begin my sincere dissent, I would like to express how much Teen REACH after school program had a positive impact on me and how I have witnessed this in others. I hope my story can attest to the support that this program provides.

Here we go again! Once again we are being force-fed nurse-practitioners and all of those other types of nurses mentioned in the Daily News article in the Wednesday evening paper.
