Generation WOW

GenWOWOn November 19th, three of our current Simon Youth Academy students attended a presentation provided by the district called GenWOW. Generation WOW exposes girls to the positive and the possible by creating opportunities that help build the future leaders of the world by connecting them to the leaders of today. There are motivational speakers, a little bit of dancing and they get paired off with a mentor.


To top it off, one of our former students who graduated from Simon Youth Academy at Outlet Marketplace, was there on assignment with the Orange Technical College. She took an opportunity to interview one of our students. It was delightful to see her in action. So professional, so engaging, and she put our girls at ease about being on camera. It was a proud SYF moment to see that a student who had come in to our school for a second chance is taking every opportunity to succeed. We are so proud of Jessica Youngblood and our current Simon Youth Academy students.
