“Thank you for not giving up on our son.”

“We wanted to give you a little update on Raphaël upon his completion of the YMCA Alternative Suspension program. His dad and I really had the wrong idea about this program. At first, we were completely against it. Afraid of the unknown. We were wrong!

It has been a wonderful experience for Raphaël. He studied for 3 hours in the morning, however the most important part of the program was the workshops. He said that he really liked them. In addition, he really likes Julia, his youth worker.

If you encounter other parents who do not know about the program, I will be happy to speak to them about our son’s positive and possibly life changing experience.

We promise to keep working with you to help Raphaël become a well-adjusted young man who will ultimately be an asset to society.

We thank you for your continued efforts.”

We hope that this message will brighten your day, just like it brightened ours.
