Hancock Resource Center (HRC) would like to give a big shout out and special thank you to Shawn and Jess Bernard for their generous donation of $3,000.00! The funds were raised through a poker run the couple hosted in honor of their late son, Dakota Necaise. After weighing their options, the couple decided they would like the funds to benefit HRC’s youth mentor program, HYRE (Hancock Youth Ready for Employment). HYRE is a youth mentor program designed to provide a positive influence for at-risk youth in Hancock County. The program will pair the youth with mentors in the community that will help guide and support them in identifying their interests, exploring available options, and planning career pathways that will lead to successful career placements. Thanks again to Shawn and Jess for all their hard work and for investing in the youth of Hancock County!
HYLA staff will hold a workshop for interested high school applicants on Tuesday, November 2nd at 6:30 p.m. at the Hancock Resource Center office, located at 454 Highway 90, Suite B in Waveland (Next to PRCC) OR there will be a recording to watch beginning November 3rd that you must register for.  Applicants should attend ONE of these workshops. The deadline for submission of applications has been extended to Thursday, November 11th at 4:00 p.m. 
See your school counselor for applications or visit our website. Applications are due on Monday, November 8th by 4 p.m. Applications can be turned into your school's counselor.
