Youth In Politics

We recently hosted an event that left a lasting impact on everyone involved. With the support of our partners, Shabach Ministries, and the presence of esteemed special guests Delegate Ashanti Martinez, Executive Director Janna Parker (PG Changemakers), and Sinclair Bayard (A3 Performance), it was a day filled with inspiration and empowerment. We would also like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to Topilino's Italian Restaurant of Clinton for generously donating a catered lunch for our teens and special guests.

     Our main objective for the event was to educate and engage the incredible teens who participated. The day was dedicated to teaching them about the significance of politics and the importance of being actively involved in their communities. Through interactive discussions, activities, and thought-provoking conversations, we aimed to ignite their passion for making a difference.

     We couldn't be prouder of the teens who participated in the event. Their enthusiasm and eagerness to learn were truly inspiring. In addition to their active involvement in political discussions, they also dedicated their time and energy to a meaningful cause. Together, they packaged over 400 bags of groceries in preparation for an upcoming grocery giveaway. Their commitment to serving their community exemplified the incredible potential and compassion they possess.

     Delegate Ashanti Martinez played a vital role in the event by graciously sharing his valuable insights and engaging the teens in important conversations. His presence and dedication to empowering the younger generation left a lasting impression on everyone involved. We are deeply grateful for his contributions and support.

We extend our heartfelt appreciation to Topilino's Italian Restaurant of Clinton for their generous donation, which provided a delicious catered lunch for our teens and special guests.

     The event not only educated and empowered our teens in the realms of politics and community involvement but also showcased their remarkable dedication to serving others. We are confident that these young individuals will continue to make a positive impact and shape a brighter future for us all.

Easter/Literacy Event

We hope you had a wonderful Palm Sunday! Yesterday's event was truly amazing. Our guests enjoyed a variety of activities, including a visit from the Easter Bunny and the Panda Express Panda. We would like to express our gratitude to Dr. Nichols (Principal) for hosting our event and Frederick Douglass HS and to the incredible teenagers who volunteered at our STEM literacy and Easter stations. Hailing from 10 different middle and high schools, these teens did an outstanding job and made their parents, principals, and teachers proud.

The event was a hit with all age groups. Our preschoolers, elementary schoolers, teens, and parents had a fantastic time participating in a range of activities, from solving crossword puzzles and creating art at the Play-Doh table to Easter egg hunting and dying eggs. They also enjoyed decorating cookies, making bracelets, designing suncatchers, and participating in our spelling bee.

We would like to extend a special thanks to our generous donors, who made the event possible. Panda Express donated and served over 200 meals to our youth and their families. The Alexandria Sheriff's Department contributed 13 boxes of books, allowing us to provide each participant with at least 5 books. Groshell Logistics provided transport services to collect this generous donation. Additionally, we appreciate the contributions of Safeway of Upper Marlboro, OEM Warehouse, Wegmans of Lanham, ALDI's, Walmart of Clinton, PG Change Makers, Briddell Family Foundation, Shabbach Ministry, Door Dash, and Costco.

Digital art exhibit



STEAM Day was amazing.  We would like to thank Dr. Nichols the Principal at Frederick Douglass for allowing us the space to host this event.  The amazing teen were amazing teachers during their lessons in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. 


We like to offer a special thanks to our amazing sponsors: Shabach Ministries, Wegmans of Lanham, Groshell Logistics, PG Changemakers, ALDI's, and PG Parks and Recreation.

The Abstinence class was nothing short of amazing.  Teens from Frederick Douglas, Wise, Suitland, CMIT South, and Gwynn Park took an 8-hour course on Abstinence and Goal setting taught by Rev. Agnew from Community Builders, LTD.  The teens were actively engaged and participated in rich conversations about their life goals, personal views, and their accomplishments thus far.  This class is a must-have for our teens.  

The session was followed up with a parent meeting which was just as powerful as the class.  Parents spoke about how much their teens have opened up to discuss what they discussed in class and parents were pleased to see their teens engaged in meaningful sessions earning service learning hours.
