Hear what LISA CHASTAIN, Parent of retreat graduate, CONNER CHASTAIN wrote:
We are extremely proud of YLA recent graduates. Check out the great things they had to say:
My name is Felicia Ricafort, I am 17 years old, and a senior at Durango High School. During YLA’s A Safe Place to Land – The Retreat, I have received spiritual, personal, professional, and physical training. I have learned so much that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. The leadership abilities that I have gained over this past weekend will only help me soar in college and in the Air Force.
My name is Quincy Fisher. I am 15 years old and I go to FHS (Foothill High School). I received Marine and Fireman training. This retreat really made me think more about going into the military or fire department. I really appreciate this opportunity and definitely would love to see everyone again next year.
