Featuring keynote speaker John O'Leary
Expected to die. Now, teaching others how to truly live.
In 1987, John was a curious nine-year-old boy. Playing
with fire and gasoline, John created a massive explosion
in his home and was burned on 98% of his body. He was
given one percent chance to survive.
Journey alongside John O'Leary as he revisits the day he was burned. On this dynamic walk, you will stand with him the night he was told he'd die; the afternoon he first believed he wouldn't; and other formative experiences after the fire. Along the way, John will share the critical lessons he learned with help from friends both old and new. Learn more about John's story at http://rising-above.com/

The Celebrate Our Youth Breakfast provides an opportunity for the community to support enhanced education. In 1999 the Dean Starr Endowment Breakfast launched the successful idea of a yearly breakfast event. Since that first year, community members have gathered early in the morning each spring to enjoy an inspiring speaker, a delicious breakfast and share their generosity and support of education.

Back by popular demand, it's the Little Black Dress Party!!
Enjoy a relaxing, fun fashion show and learn what to wear to those holiday parties. . . the work party, the casual party, and the fancy glamour event. We'll show you all the tricks!
What a success!! On Wednesday November 7, 2012 a fantastic group of ladies
came together to kick of the holiday season and raise funds for education.
Donna Menard donated the appetizers, Chico's provided the fashion education,
Lori Crow and Lori Aoki were the live models and 26A provided the perfect
setting. Thanks to our generous donors we grossed over $1,400!
During the Little Black Dress Party, guests were invited to also donate to a
specific program, the Arts Integration Mentoring program. The AIM program
provides training and cross curriculum lessons for teachers and students to
use the visual arts as a vehicle to enhance their knowledge and skill level
in subjects such as math, reading, science and social students. Research
supports the use of hands on integrated activities to help students
understand concepts and retain information better and longer. It helps raise
the achievement level.
Boys in Peril movie
Monday, March 18 from 7 PM to 9 PM Davis High School KIVA
Thursday, March 21 from 7 PM to 9 PM Allied Arts 5000 W Lincoln Ave, Yakima
In March of 2013 the Yakima Schools Foundation partnered with Allied Arts and the Yakima School District to bring this great documentary to our community. Audience members enjoyed the film at A.C. Davis High School and Allied Arts followed by a Q&A Discussion on the importance of preparing students for post high school success.
This feature-length documentary film by Graham Streeter follows three high school seniors, each attempting to navigate through the daunting and challenging transition between high school and college. This film is a compelling look into the common obstacles that face young Hispanic men who truly aspire to better their lives by obtaining a college education and the goodness of teachers, parent and programs that strive to make that possible.
