Next year we will be going back to Wisconsin to attend the RYLA Leadership retreat.

JAB members have gone with Joshua to Wisconsin to represent Joshua's Heart Foundation for the past few years. RYLA is a weekend retreat on a campground in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. About 5-7 JAB members attend the camp with Joshua and interact and make friends with other leaders. If you are interested in attending RYLA, please get in touch with Dexter or Celeste. Below are pictures of past trips with JAB members.

The dates for the trip are March 11-13th, 2022, and April 8-10th, 2022.

Opportunities to Shine!
Applications are open for Prudential Emerging Visionaries, a program that celebrates young people bringing fresh perspectives and innovative solutions to pressing financial and societal challenges in their communities. 

Prudential Emerging Visionaries will recognize students ages 14-18 who have innovative solutions to societal and financial challenges. The program builds on the legacy and momentum of the Prudential Spirit of Community Awards, the country's largest youth recognition program based exclusively on volunteer community service. 

"The new direction is lauded by 20-year-old Joshua Williams, a 2013 Prudential honoree and Ashoka Young Changemaker who runs Joshua's Heart Foundation, which has distributed more than 3 million pounds of food to impoverished families around the world."
