We had a Father’s Day to remember at Kissimmee Youth Academy! All of the fathers were presented with a monogrammed mug filled with tasty treats and a special Father’s Day message. Thanks again to all KYA fathers for your selflessness and hard work.
The youth enrolled in “Impact of Crime” and participated in a restorative justice project of their choice. The youth put together bags containing socks, deodorant, toothbrush/toothpaste, and lip balm to donate to the homeless. They worked very well together and enjoyed the activity. All youth stated that it made them feel good to help someone in need. The items have been donated to the Osceola Christian Ministry Center.
