We just finished our networking event and I have to say I am surprisingly pleased at the results. As a new YES intern, this was my first experience at this event and I enjoyed seeing the teens interact with the professionals and viceversa. There was a lot of positive energy and feedback from the YES teens in attendance. I was especially happy to see that most of my kids-9 out of 11-showed up to the event which was a better turnout than I expected! Sadly, one of my teens, Seth Akakpo-Lado, decided that today was his last day. He was involved in several other organizations and wasn't able to divide his time equally. My group of teens will definitely miss his presence but we're happy for all the exciting things he has lined up. He let me know that the networking event and working with the kids of the community groups was his best and favorite part of the entire YES program. I wish all my teens could have attended the program today, but that comment definitely made my day and makes the whole summer worth it!

It's the end of week 4 and we're well into the program right now! I've met and gotten to know my 13 wonderful teens and I'm looking forward to the next few weeks with them! At this point, we're brainstorming and trying to find ways to improve our activities so the community groups enjoy it better and learn more about living and nonliving things. But my YES teens are doing an excellent job, and I can't wait to see what the rest of the summer holds!
