a snowball effect

Our [RY] program has been successful because teachers and staff see a change in student behavior and grades because of RY. Our leaders are skilled at working with youth, have built trust with school staff, and have implemented the [RY] program with fidelity. The students talk amongst themselves and want to sign up for the class.
