Joselynn M. – 3rd Grade – Curren School
Joselynn was introduced to our Summer Reading Challenge by her teacher, Mrs. Cabrera. Joselynn made sure to read each day this summer and her dedication definitely paid off when she won a pair of Apple AirPods! Her favorite book was our July giveaway, a signed copy of Turning Pages by Sonia Sotomayor. Congratulations!!
At Vision Young Leaders' Academy we host a group hangout on the 2nd Friday of every month in order to build a supportive community filled with a variety of fun filled activities. One recent group hangout was at Skating Plus in Ventura. Even though falling seemed to be the theme of the evening for some of us, we had such a fun time roller skating and hanging out together.
Each quarter we hold a Vision Book Club. We select a current Young Adult Book and meet biweekly to discuss. We are currently reading My Family Divided by Diane Guerrero with Erica Moroz.. Grab a copy of her book and join in!
We are committed to making our community a better place and have community service events throughout the year. This year our young members collected personal items for 100 hygiene bags to be distributed to displaced community members in Oxnard.
Professional soccer player, Yadira Toraya, joined our meetup to share her story from childhood to becoming a professional soccer player. She explained the many struggles she encountered along the way and how her desire to succeed was greater than any hurdle she met. Yadira challenged our members to set goals and never give up on them. She instilled in them that it doesn't matter who you are or where you are from, anything is possible.
