The Flint and Genesee Chamber of Commerce YouthQuest students will explore America through the Planes, Trains and Automobile Year-end event.  On Thursday, June 6 YouthQuest students will participate in the celebration at Bluebell Beach from 4:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Students from 15 YouthQuest school sites from throughout the region will present a state through travel-themed activities.  Each site was tasked with representing a chosen state through food, creating a brochure, an art project and the state flag.

According to Rhetta Hunyady, Vice President of Education and Training for the Chamber Planes, Trains and Automobiles is designed to help students explore America.

“YouthQuest was created to provide an afterschool enrichment opportunity for students in the region,” said Hunyady.  “Simulating travel across America provides a fun, interactive way for YouthQuest students to gain a greater understanding of different parts of the country.  This event provides a creative way to see each state through the eyes of YouthQuest students.”

YouthQuest is a free afterschool program that reaches K-8 students at 15 school-based sites in Flint and Genesee County managed by the Chamber.  For more information about YouthQuest contact Rhetta Hunyady at (810) 600-1412 or visit www.yquest.org .
