Thank you EMU for Hosting YCS at EMU Education Day-Video

Last week, Eastern Michigan University hosted over 650 YCS students in 5th grade, middle school, and high school for EMU Education Day at the Convention Center.  YCS students had a quick science spotlight and then watched EMU Men's Basketball team beat Drexel. Please take a moment to see all the happy smiling faces in the video--they had a great time!

A special thank you to Chartwell's, Durham and EMU Athletic Department for making this a great day for our YCS students!

New Gaga Pit at Holmes Elementary

Matt Read completed his Eagle Scout Service Project at Holmes Elementary this past October by building a highly anticipated gag pit for the students. Matt started the process by having meetings with administrators from YCS to talk about the project, how it would work and the benefit for the students at Holmes. The project started in mid-August and was complete for students to use at the end of October.
