Dear Friends of Lutherwood,

No matter how hard we try to avoid life’s challenges and setbacks, we will all experience them at some point in our lives. They can be hard, but the good news is that we can overcome them. After speaking to former Youth Job Connection participant Ashley, I was so inspired by her ability to keep moving forward and refusing to give up on finding her dream job, even when all of the doors around her seemed to be closing. The messages of inspiration above are from other Youth Job Connection students during their first workshop. Their words show us that we should never let a setback spoil our dreams, and with the right attitude, any obstacle can lead to new opportunities.
We hope that the stories we cover featuring our clients, staff and partnerships inspire you. Thank you for reading our fifth issue of InSight  and if you have any feedback or suggestions, please don't hesitate to contact us. Enjoy!

When Life Gets Hard, Keep Moving Forward

Just two months away from graduation, Ashley could hardly wait to start looking for work. But when the private skills and training college she was attending suddenly closed, Ashley was devastated. 
 
A Gift From the He"art"

I have seen pictures of Art and heard his name in so many places as I settle in at Lutherwood so I felt like I knew him already when I met him for the first time. Known as King  Art, Art Thomas has been working with youth at Lutherwood for more than 38 years.
