On Wednesday, May 4, high school students from McGavock High School’s Junior Achievement of Middle Tennessee’s Company Program presented YHTP’s Founder Andrea Conte and Executive Director Cathy Gurley with a check in the amount of $450.
The funds were raised when the students developed their own business venture from inception to liquidation to profit as a collaborative project. Volunteer business leaders in the community provided guidance to ensure that the McGavock students learned skills relevant to finding success in future business endeavors.
And to those who give to YHTP throughout the year, you cannot know how very much we appreciate your support. You give us momentum to fine-tune our existing programs and to develop new avenues for reaching a greater audience in our efforts to end violence of any kind!
If you were among the number who joined with Andrea Conte and the Board of Directors of You Have The Power in honoring founding board members Judy Steele Bayer, Jody Folk, Ron Samuels, and Steve Turner on Tuesday, April 26, thank you!
Thank you to Mayor Megan Barry for stopping by to praise the work we do regarding teen violence (covered by NewsChannel5).
We appreciate your support, and we further appreciate that you purchased so many of the wonderful “centerpieces” created by our Tennessee artists!
We are now settled into a new location at:
2401 White Avenue
Nashville, TN 37204
Our telephone numbers remain the same.
