WHAT WE ARE DOING.
MISSION & VISION.
This may sound like a silly idea, we are reaching out to our local community to engage and rally together to help Support Your Local Youth. It is seeming ever so true when Einstein said 'The world is becoming such an ugly place to live in and that is not because of the bad people doing bad things, it is because of people such as yourselves not doing anything about it'. In saying that, we present this opportunity to you being a proud and valued member of our local community in playing your part taking a huge step forwardly sponsoring two of your local youth in becoming positive and productive individuals in our community with your support of course.
All we ask is that you contribute towards this SYLY IDEA in any form whether it be loose change or volunteer duties would be greatly appreciated. Your contribution goes towards clothing, safety gear, and equipment for the youths to engage in performing supervised work such as home and garden care for their local community. In appreciation of your contribution, our youths that are sponsored by you in return will come to your home on a pre booked invitation, to cut your lawn as you prefer to the value of your contribution.This will give you some sort of indication of where we are going with this concept and all we ask is that if the young men applied themselves diligently that you would continue your support with our Home & Garden Care Service. We move forward now with anticipation of a successful program that should lift spirits and set a platform to model our efforts nationally.
At SYLY, we believe that educated, employed, and engaged young people possess the power to solve the world’s toughest problems. For more than 25 years, we’ve led and sustained coordinated action to harness the talent and potential of the countries youth, At the heart of our efforts is building partnerships, initiatives, and curricula that prepare young men and women to succeed as citizens, employees, entrepreneurs, and change-makers. SYLY envisions a world where all young people achieve their full potential and shape the future with power and confidence. SYLY prepares young people to be healthy, productive, and engaged citizens.
We have partnered with some of the best businesses to help support and grow SYLY IDEA. With the help of our partners, SYLY is presented with the opportunity to help young people initiate their dreams and engage in action.
