Hello Everyone!
On behalf of Pelican State Youth Movement, I would like to wish you all a very
Merry Christmas Card - Old Fashioned Street Scene

And all the best to you and your families in 2017.

I’d like to briefly tell you a bit about our organization.  First and foremost, our mission at Pelican State Youth Movement is to prepare the youth of Morehouse parish for meeting the many challenges they will face in their everyday lives while also enhancing the overall development of our community as a whole.  For short, that’s what we’re all about.  Its all about our youth!!  Its all about providing our youth with the support, inspiration, encouragement and knowledge to give them a chance to excel in school as well as in life.  Its about giving them the assurance and confidence to stepup and speakup for themselves.  To tell the teacher, “I can”.  To tell those drug dealers, “no thanks”.  To tell those gang bangers, “no way”.  Its about teaching them that they control their destinys.  Letting them know that they do have choices, and that the choices they make will directly affect the life that they’ll lead in the future.

Since 2002, the Pelican State Youth Movement organization and its many loyal volunteers have facilitated many events and activities that have benefited, and have been enjoyed by our youth.  Our annual Multi-Sports Camp program has been attended by hundreds of kids who not only receive instruction on basketball, track, golf, and soccer, but also receive inspiration and knowledge from local leaders who speak and share their experiences.  Our After School program has shared funding with several Morehouse parish schools to assist with their afterschool programs in order to help our kids perform better in the classroom as well as on state standardized tests.  The Community Action Team program  has partnered with local organizations, along with adult and youth volunteers to participate in community service events like the Great American Cleanup which teaches our youth volunteerism,  teamwork and hard work.  Still in its infant stages is our G.I.R.L. program that has been designed to raise the self-esteem of our young ladies and help them to realize that they’re just as important as their counterparts(young men) in all facets of their development.  As well as bring awareness to issues facing our young adolescent ladies and the give them a forum to voice their social or personal concerns in a group setting, or one on one with mentor.

PSYM founder Kenny Natt started this organization in order  to give back to the community that he loved and cared a great deal for.  He, like me and many of you, have left home and have family and lives elsewhere that has now become home.  However my friends, Bastrop and Morehouse parish  will always will be home.  And its for that reason that we at Pelican State Youth Movement will continue to do all that we can to give our youth all that they need to be successful students, law abiding citizens and good people in general.

The future of our hometown will someday be in the hands of the very youth that our organization is trying to help.   Of course, we could not offer these life changing programs and activities without the financial support  of donors like you.  Thanks so much to all of you who have answered our pleas for help.  However, if you haven’t, would you please consider making a tax deductible donation to Pelican State Youth Movement?   Your support will enable our organization to continue to help our youth reach their fullest potential and increase their chances of becoming successful individuals who will in turn make Bastrop and Morehouse parish a successful and thriving community.

Sincerely

Karl L. Natt
