I wanted to share this powerful quote (referring to the quote “Darkness Fuels the Light”) from S. L. Young. I am always searching for resources, inspiration, wisdom, etc., that will help SCIP'S efforts to reconnect and keep youth connected to their communities. As a kid growing up, S. L. Young was not unlike so many of the kids we work with today and yet he found a way to use education to lift him to a place where he can give back in profound ways. I wrote this particular quote on a classroom dry erase board two weeks ago and the teacher has yet to remove it. I believe there are thousands of kids whom we have had the opportunity to work with who have the potential to be another S. L. Young.
