BENEFITING: Latin American Youth Center, Inc.
EVENT: LAYC Dance-A-Thon 2017
EVENT DATE: Mar 04, 2017
Help us better enhance the services to our youth! Funds raised through LAYC’s Fourth Annual Dance-a-Thon will be allocated to programs such as the Montgomery County Conservation Corps (MCCC), a program offering both GED classes and hands-on job experience, Steps 2 Success which offers pre-GED academic services, and Full Circle Brotherhood (FCB), a program centered around the encouragement, support, and empowering of young men. We aspire to strengthen the success of our youth through strengthening our assistance. Our specific goals include purchasing new desks and school supplies for the students in order to establish a more classroom-like atmosphere and ultimately encourage academic success. In addition, we will increase both the quality of food and frequency in which students receive meals ensuring they remain fully nourished and energized in the classroom. Even furthermore, funds will be used towards travel fare easing the burden of travel costs for students. Lastly, we will be recreating a well-deserved graduation ceremony for all MMYC students. Help the youth by helping our cause!
TIME: 9 AM — NOON
LOCATION: Woodrow Wilson High School, 3950 Chesapeake St NW, Washington, DC
