Hello Family and Friends,
We hope this message finds you all in good health and high spirits. Throughout this particular summer, I've been thinking a lot about the SSYO mission statement, that is, “to build strong, young lives, so our community will thrive.” As a person who's almost always assessing things, it's pretty normal for me to ask myself if our organization is staying on course, as far as practicing our core values, in order to continue achieving our mission. However, I've realized something even deeper recently in regard to this assessment. For those of us on staff here at SSYO, building strong, young lives is much more than a mission statement at our place of current employment.
