Nomination Letter

Tim Carr, Director
York County, PA

I am writing on behalf of a young gentleman in York County who has been receiving Behavioral Health services for the past 2 ½ years. His name is Robert Amanullah and he lives with his father, step-mother and 3 other siblings in one house. When Robert first came to Youth Advocate Programs in 2006, he was having difficulty with respecting others, especially his brother. Since that time, Robert has continued to take the appropriate steps to self-regulate his anger. All staff that have had the opportunity to connect with Robert have truly enjoyed the time spent together. It is safe to say, we have learned as much from him, as he has gained from us.

Approximately 6 months ago, I was approached by Craig Nell, Mobile Therapist for Robert, and we discussed what this young man was going to do after he graduated from Northeastern High School. Craig expressed how knowledgeable Robert was at computers and that they had had many discussions about the intricate parts of the computer and how different computer and video games worked. Robert had wanted to do something to utilize his love and desire for computers and their programming. With the support of his family, YAP staff, and his own desire to achieve his goals, Robert was able to find a Computer and Information Science major at Harrisburg University.

It is my pleasure to write this letter on behalf of Robert Amanullah to request financial assistance for him from the Endowment Fund Committee to assist him in continuing his journey to achieve his dream. Robert has taken initiative to get a job and apply for other means of financial aid, but still that will not cover all housing and student costs. So it is my request that you consider Robert Amanullah for financial assistance for the upcoming Fall Semester at Harrisburg University. If I can clarify or be of any more assistance, please don't hesitate to reach out to me. I appreciate the time you have taken to review this request. Thank you.
