“It’s not about what it is, it is about what it can become.” ~Dr. Seuss, The Lorax
The greatest gift we can give to our youth is to believe in them. To believe that they can overcome and that they can be the best them. For PAL that means we work hard to help the youth and teens we work with realize their “untapped potential.” We know that the young people we are walking alongside have so much to offer, and it is our honor to watch them grow and accomplish things that maybe they didn’t think they could.
Over the last week or so PAL saw several of our teens graduate from high school. We had approximately 12 teen graduates from Hudson’s Bay, Fort Vancouver, and Evergreen High Schools this year! We are so proud of each and every one of them and we know that they will go to make their community and their world a better place.
Class of 2017 you are pretty amazing and PAL is grateful that you let us into your lives! Stay true to who you are and never stop dreaming.
