It’s Almost Time to Celebrate!
YCLC’s Virtual Celebrate Success Event will premiere HERE on Thursday, March 11th.
In our 45th year of service, York County Literacy Council has seen much success – many students’ goals achieved, expanded programs, growing volunteer numbers and FINALLY a new facility!
In celebration of these achievements, YCLC will team up with Diemo Productions to virtually Celebrate Success. Kicking off our 14th Annual Literacy Empowerment Campaign, this video will highlight those students who have dedicated countless hours of hard work to achieve their High School Equivalency Diploma, obtain Citizenship, pass a healthcare career pathways course, gain employment, and much more!
John Klinedinst, Literacy Empowerment Campaign Honorary Chair, will lead the event alongside YCLC alumni whose stories will truly move you.
