Student quotes

Thank you for a great year! - H.J., Senior
We don’t do this to look good. We do this because we all want to make a change in this community. We do this because we love our community and we want it to be better. - K.A., Junior
YCPT for me has been a “second home”, where I have gotten to know many people I would have never met. I have formed meaningful relationships with many people and made new friends. - Y.K., Junior
