YOUR GREAT LAKES CENTER FOR YOUTH DEVELOPMENT UPDATE

GLCYD'S ANN GONYEA.

Ann Gonyea, with the Great Lakes Center For Youth Development joined us in the studios to talk about “sparks”.  No, not those kinds of sparks!  What she meant was those inklings and early drives people feel as children to follow certain interests.  For example, athletics, music, art or even wanting to do radio!  Many time as we mature, we put those sparks out or on the back shelf and go on with our lives.  Ann told us about a program that focuses on those sparks in area youth to develop them and use them to develop the youth into productive and effective community leaders.  To listen to the interview with Ann, please click “HERE“, and to go to the website for the GLCYD agency, please click “HERE“.
