This past May marks the beginning of our 66th year. Sun Youth was founded in the spring of 1954 by Earl De La Perralle and Sid Stevens, who were 9 and 13 years old. This past year was particularly difficult due to the passing of Earl. In his memory, we continue his work with pride, dedication, empathy and respect.
