Jordean was recently notified that he finished the 2015-2016 school year by making his schools Honour Roll

A rare honour reserved only for those students who excel

August, 2016

We are pleased to share with you some exciting news regarding Jordean Shand, who is the Youth Representative of YMM, and our youngest Board Member.

Jordean was recently notified that he finished the 2015-2016 school year by making his schools Honour Roll, a rare honour reserved only for those students who excel in their pursuits and show excellent promise.

Jordean is a brilliant and dedicated student, whose family continues to make sacrifices for him and his siblings so that they can receive the best possible education. In 2012, Jordean received a scholarship to attend a well-respected high school located a good distance away from his home. The cost of commuting quickly became expensive, and created a hardship which eventually began to jeopardize his attendance and subsequently his grades.

Thanks to the grace of God, and the provisions He has made through our sponsors, YMM has been able to commit to paying for Jordean’s room and board in a home in close proximity to the school until he graduates. Since receiving this assistance, Jordean’s grades have quickly returned to normal, and his latest accomplishment is a heartwarming testimony to that fact.

Jordean’s story is not unique; YMM mentors many bright, promising children, who, due to a lack of financial resources are unable to reach their full potential in school. For these children, we offer sponsorships, and have been blessed to receive commitments of support for many of our students. We are always seeking new sponsors, however, as our program continues to grow, and the needs are great.

If you are interested in becoming a sponsor for a child in our program, or if you are unable to commit to ongoing sponsorship, but would like to help in another way, please contact any member of our Board by clicking here, or you may call Delpha Dyer at (876)784-9010, or email her at deldyer.ymm@gmail.com
