the ydc mentoring program
The Youth Director’s Council (YDC) is open to all boys and girls, ages 11-17 who are enrolled in school.
Our goals are to improve self-esteem, attendance, attitudes, academics, teamwork skills, leadership skills and staying away from risky behaviors. All in all, we strive to help our students become well-rounded leaders through community service.
All participants sign an agreement to be drug, alcohol, and tobacco-free.
Weekly meetings/events include topics such as leadership, responsibility, furthering their education after high school, community service, budgeting, resume building, professional development, doing the right thing, anti-bullying, and anti-drugs.
In an attempt to keep our students safe from COVID-19, YDC meetings are held online via Zoom Video Conferencing, every other Saturday from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm. The program will become both online and in-person in summer 2021.
Anyone interested in joining is welcomed to contact Ms. Veizaga via phone at 786-448-9075 or email Melanie@beachpal.org.
