Our Administrators are better than yours! What started off as an idea by AFA Mrs. Buchanan came through to reality. AFA’s Mr. Manuel and Mr. Curry along with FA Mr. Slayton hosted a BBQ for the KYA Youth and Staff. With COVID-19 causing so much chaos and uncertainty in the world, the administrator’s wanted to reward the youth for their good behavior and the staff for their continued hard work and dedication. The food was amazing and well appreciated. 

“Taco Tuesday” has become very popular at Kissimmee Youth Academy. The menu consisted of a variety of soft and hard shell tacos. The youth and staff were all happy and looking forward to the next one. Kudos to the Morale Committee for putting everything together and a special thanks to all who assisted to make this a successful event!
