Once again we are thrilled to have a City of Asheville Youth Leadership Academy (CAYLA) intern with us for the summer. Calvin Clark joined us a few weeks ago and today several of our staff spent some time with all the CAYLA interns to get their thoughts on the issues facing our community in the area of Education.
When asked about the biggest take-away from her time with the students, Ann Von Brock had this to say; "I realized that they (teens) have important ideas to share but they don’t always feel that people (parents, teacher, and other adults) really listen to what they have to say. They want to be involved and they want to be heard. We need to help make that happen.”
We wish all of you a great experience this summer during your placements and, of course, throughout your lives!
