Girl Learns Leadership at HSVS Youth Program

January 12, 2017

Impact Stories

Treasure is thirteen years old and a leader among her peers. Walking around her Beacon program with a yellow HeartShare St. Vincent’s t-shirt, Treasure has intricate knowledge of what’s going on. She’s been a part of the program since the 4th grade. Treasure knows everyone and everyone knows her. But it didn’t start off that way. Treasure was a quiet girl, who slowly built a rich extracurricular life through her after-school and summer camp experiences. In addition to enjoying trips throughout New York City, Treasure developed her passion for dance. “Through dance, Treasure was able to express herself more,” said Assistant Director Radayza Montas. With the program as a safe space, Treasure felt encouraged to pursue student government. She ran for a position on the student Senate and won. What’s the best part of being a part of the HSVS Beacon family for this long? “There’s always something to do here. It’s great!” she said.
