On behalf of the Brandywine Health Foundation and the Coatesville Youth Initiative's board of directors, we are pleased and proud to share with you some important news. As of January 2014, the Coatesville Youth Initiative (CYI) has begun its new journey as an independent non-profit organization.
Over the last four years, we at the Brandywine Health Foundation had the unique opportunity to serve as an incubator of the CYI, watching this organization evolve and convene a diverse group of people making a difference in the lives of our greatest community asset....Coatesville's youth. We are proud to say that today, because of your investment and tremendous support, Coatesville youth are benefitting from a network of caring, competent, committed adults, who are making youth a priority.
"Without the Coatesville Youth Initiative ServiceCorps program I don't really know where I would be right now and I know that I wouldn't be as confident and outspoken as I am...The Coatesville Youth Initiative gave me courage, skills that I will use, great friends, strength, hope, but most of all it gave me a family." -- 2013 ServiceCorps participant
Congratulations to the entire Coatesville Youth Initiative team as you embark on this exciting new journey!
