Hello all!  It's been now a month of SCI AmeriCoprs service for me at the North Suburban YMCA.  We are hoping to start a Middle School program resembling a drop-in center over at the YMCA!  I'm really excited about this, but I could use some help!  Those of you who are middle school students we could use your input on what you would like for a place to go? Also parents and community would would like to see out of a facility for these students?  Just let me know!  I'm always open for new ideas!
