Join in recognizing our graduates on American Graduate Day
At Simon Youth Foundation, we believe graduation day is an amazing stop on life’s journey. No matter how you got there, the challenges you faced, or the obstacles you overcame, the day you graduated from high school is one that you will never forget.
American Graduate Day is Saturday, September 27th, and we’re marking this national conversation about education by celebrating the achievements of our Simon Youth Academy graduates. We will join the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, WFYI, and AmericanGraduate.org in touting not only the importance of the day, but also brag a little bit about the achievements of our students.
We are enormously proud of our graduates, and we salute them, their families, their teachers, and their mentors on the collective work it took to reach this day. SYF remains committed to working with our partners to ensure that our students attain this goal. Anyone familiar with our work knows that we fight every day to make a difference in the lives of at-risk youth and help them develop the life skills and devotion necessary not only to graduate from high school, but to succeed beyond that.
Please listen to your local public broadcasting station for stories about students achieving the goal of becoming a high school graduate. Listen to their stories as they recount their journeys and make it clear that the best is yet to come.
In Indianapolis, tune into WFYI at 4:24 p.m. on Saturday, September 27, 2024 to learn more about SYF. Follow @wfyi and @simon_youth on Twitter, and use #AmGradIndy to join in the conversation and celebrate our graduates!
