Our mission is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those from disadvantaged
circumstances to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens. 

After this article ran, I had many questions from different kids here at the Club.  Many were concerned or scared at the thought of The Fallon Youth Club closing. For many of our kids we ARE the consistent, concerned happy adults they wait to see everyday!

One little one in particular, Kayla,  
(the dark haired girl pictured here) asked me, "Miss Myndee, is the Club closing?" I told her not right now, but we have to start raising money to keep our doors open.
She said,"WHAT!  I will do anything for FYC!",  as she reached into her pocket and gave me $ .50. "I LOVE FYC!!! I will help!"
 This kind and thoughtless consideration of giving back to her Club overwhelmed me with emotion. I gave little Kayla a BIG hug and thanked her!  I love to see the mission in motion!
