The IY program just gets better and better each year! Again, one of my highlights each week has been spending Fridays with the 17 students in our 5th Investment Year class! Each IY has finished the equivalent of 10th grade (UK- GCSE’s) and are taking a year to be trained in practical life skills and experience internships in the areas they’re interested in pursuing.
While they are busy in their placements throughout New Hope from Monday to Thursday, Friday is IY training day- where we cover worldview, public speaking, business etiquette, biblical exegesis and hermeneutics, computers, business skills and personal finance, and more! (Have I ever said how exciting it is to be equipping the next generation? I can’t believe I’m so blessed to get to call this my “job”!!)
