Success Stories

Meet Rashaud, an 8th grade student. He is a proud member of the Youth FORCE program at Gulfstream Middle School. Youth FORCE, which is funded by the Children's Services Council of Broward County and managed by Memorial Healthcare System at Gulfstream, has enabled Rashaud to succeed by teaching him skills to be a better student, and he's also taken advantage of participating in programs like the Boy Scouts, swimming, theater and community service.
19-year-old Laura has autism and ADHD, but thanks to the Children's Services Council, ARC Broward and you, she is now successfully employed.
"This program has touched me and made a difference in my life."

The Faces of CSC

The greatest tool you can give a child is the ability to persuade and speak with confidence. Being that my YIG experience positively impacted my emotional literacy skills, I would like to pass these on to those who are less fortunate.

"I will be the first to say, Youth in Government should be a part of every teenager's life, because I know without it I wouldn't be the person I am."
