Scholarship Dinner

It's that time of year! We're in the final stages of determining our scholarship winner, and preparing a dinner in honor of not only his achievements, but the achievements of others in the community. 

Youth For A Positive Image has been hosting the Scholarship Dinner for 12 years now, and consider the dinner an important way to express to the child that their efforts are being noticed. We ask that people in the community attend, and acknowledge the best of future for where they are going, and what they are going to achieve. 

Below is the flyer for the scholarship dinner, if you would like to attend.
