Would you like to recognize a peer for going above and beyond the call of duty? Please consider visiting our website www.yc.edu/ycsa to have a certificate of gratitude sent to them. It doesn’t take long and a simple “I appreciate you!” is usually enough to brighten someone’s day.
This is open to all staff members, full-time, part-time…it doesn’t matter. Let’s celebrate the hard work and dedication our staffers give every day! We look forward to seeing your nominations, and thank you for your continued support!

Please join me in congratulating James Elphick & Connie del Castillo as they join the YCSA leadership team!
Thank you to Shar and Shannon for being part of this process and for your enthusiasm in supporting YCSA. We are fortunate to have had such excellent candidates.
Over the past couple months the YCSA board has taken a close look at the summer survey results and is working hard at implementing many of the ideas and suggestions brought forth. This newsletter is our way of showing you we're listening. As the months progress, we'll be asking staff members to share stories and wisdom as well as suggestions for future articles and training. Please feel free to email the board at any time.
