Thanks for youth center funding

Dear Editor:

The Aspen Youth Center has seen one of the busiest summers on record. One day recently we had more than 70 youth visit the center and participate in our enriching programs.

I would like to acknowledge the Aspen Valley Medical Foundation for helping make our programs possible. The AVMF has been one our largest funders, allowing us to fulfill our mission.

Every day there is magic that takes place at the youth center. Youth are making connections to new friends and adult staff members who act as role models. Youth are learning lifelong lessons about empathy, sportsmanship, conflict resolution, leadership and respect. The AVMF has made a major impact on our community at the center and the entire community in the valley. To the staff, board and volunteers at the AVMF, we can’t thank you enough for your support!

Sarah Visnic

executive director, AYC
