2019 Resolutions, As Told By The Youth of Project Legacy
This past year, Project Legacy experienced an unprecedented level of growth — in the numbers of youth that came through our doors seeking support, in the number of referrals we received from professionals and organizations, and in the support we received from individual donors, foundations and volunteers.
We are so grateful for this growth and the insurmountable support from all of you, our community.
With each supporter, whether an advocate, volunteer or donor, comes increased opportunities for the young people of Project Legacy. And because of you, we are confident that 2019 is going to be another great year, with expansion, new initiatives, and most importantly, more opportunities for the youth we serve on the horizon.
So today, join us in celebrating the new year — the milestones yet to come and the plans put into action in order to achieve them. At a Circle group just over a week ago, we talked to our youth about resolutions and the importance of having a plan in order to be successful in reaching goals. Here are the resolutions they shared for 2019:
Create a routine
Address my mental health
Be more consistent
Do a better job of staying positive
Set myself up for success
Get my drivers license (three young adults expressed this as a resolution)
Catch up on child support
Find a goal
Cut back on work hours and focus on school
Get back into school
Join the nursing club at school
Open a savings account
Improve my credit score
Improve my GPA
Believe that it's ok to focus on school instead of working to support my mom and siblings
Learn how to love my family from a safe distance
Be more disciplined
Expand my professional network
Confront my social anxiety by taking an in-person class instead of all online classes.
Ask for help and then accept it
Open up more
We’re so proud of our youth in setting these goals and look forward to a year of helping them achieve them. With support, unconditional love and our community rallying around us, we know they will.
