Governor’s Weekly Message: Providing Positive Experiences for Delaware Youth

Former Governor Jack Markell (2009-2017) | News | Date Posted: Friday, August 16, 2013




In his weekly message, filmed at the Walnut Street YMCA, Governor Markell touts the after-school and summer programs available to Delaware youth – and the positive impact the programs have on their overall well-being.

“Research shows they improve academic performance, reduce drop-out rates and depression, improve self-control and self-esteem, and prevent risky behaviors such as drug and alcohol use,” said Governor Markell. “By working to provide all of our youth a safe and healthy environment to learn and be active inside and outside of school, we’ll keep Delaware moving forward.”

Every Friday, the Governor’s office releases a new Weekly Message in video, audio, and transcript form. The message is available on:
