Youth Futures
Experiences and evaluations

Our Youth Futures experience
by Maggie R. D’Agostino, Youth Futures participant

We will look back for years to come,
to remember the adventure we dared to take.

We were the first ones,
and we won't be the last.

The first time we said hello and found our rooms,
how unsure some of us felt not knowing many of you.

That first meal we just looked at each other,
but the last meal comes too soon.

The things we learned we shall pass on,
to new generations to come.

The fun and laughter and what we thought were hard times,
we will recall in the best of ways.

We held together like a family without a care,
and only knew each other for such little time.

The bond we made through those six days,
we will never forget.

The tears we shared will always be choice topic.

The last night we spent together,
followed by the last day.

We will remember how hard it was to say good-bye,
it will be forever etched in our hearts.
