Traditionally, the new year is a time of reflection. A time to take stock of things that brought you joy and things that you would like to improve. Banyan youth took some time to reflect on their aspirations for 2023. Here are some of their goals:

“I’m going to make a new friend”
“be faster and a better catcher”
“I want to drink more water”
“stop procrastinating”
“I want to change my fashion”
“bring my homework to Banyan”
“I want to be better at math”
“be a nice person”

Banyan’s theme this 25th anniversary year is Rooted, Rising, and Reaching. These goals are a tangible way to see youth rooted in Banyan, rising and reaching forward in their academics, social relationships, and personal development. We are privileged to share life with these great youth!
