Building a Toolbox* for the Future






 

 YSTA- is about building confidence. It's about giving a child a head start. All the students you see on these pages have taken the big step.  

Let me please ask you to share our program information with your children, your school, your church, and your friends. You can also sponsor a child or group.

Helping our future leaders "Build a Toolbox" is a very special feeling. Some may ask, why do I care?  Please read: about York

One parents letter 8/14/15
York,  

We went to Victor's new school yesterday and on his own he walked to, introduced himself clearly, and shook the hand of every teacher!!  This is new for him!  I didn't want to make him self conscious over it by asking about it but I am guessing it had something to do with your YSTA over the summer?  Thank you!  I was very proud of him handling himself so well.
