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.
Thanks to the Children’s Services Council and the YMCA of Broward County, students have an opportunity to give a voice to issues that are important to them.
Maci is one of hundreds of children and youth who have gone through CSC-funded Maximizing Out of School Time, Youth FORCE and STEP programs offered through the Center for Hearing and Communication.
