Hard to believe but the Class of 2020 is set to graduate, albeit virtually, via ZOOM. The Class has been amazing, flexible & historic!! We hope to celebrate with you in person this fall.  


Best Wishes YLSS Class of 2020!

Due to Covid-19, YLSS 2020 ended early &  Summer SnapShot was cancelled, but students enjoyed a gift delivered to their mailbox & video of their historic year.  We wish you all the best of luck!
