Youth First Café

Our quarterly luncheon will be Thursday, May 16th from 11:30 to 1:00pm at the Senior Citizen Center.  Our guest speaker this month will be Matt Fleck presenting the New 21st Century Scholars Success Program.  Currently more than 100,000 students in Indiana participate in the 21st Century Scholars program. These students graduate high school and attend college at a higher rate than Hoosier students overall. However, just over 1 in 10 Scholars graduate from college on time and less than a third earn a degree within six years. (  To help foster postsecondary success, new requirements for the program are being implemented this June. The most significant change is that all 21st Century Scholars who start high school in fall 2013 will be required to complete the mew Scholars Success Program by their high school graduation in order to qualify for their scholarship. This program is designed to ensure that students understand and complete specific steps required to access and succeed in college. Public is welcome.  RSVP by Wednesday, May 15th at noon to or 883-YMCA.
