Y2Y Activities at Potomac JCC

September 28th, 2017

On Wednesday, March 21st, Potomac students worked non-violence banners with their respective trades for a Peace Walk.  Students also made anti-violence pledges.

Thursday morning Potomac Job Corps Center staff and students held a Peace Walk through the surrounding community.  The walk was a great way to involve the community around an important topic.  After the walk, students read poems and spoke during a cookout.

Thursday evening was the Grand Finale Dinner.  Guests of honor included Job Corps Philadelphia Regional Director, Dr. Francis Cole and Job Corps National Director, Lenita Jacobs-Simmons.  Guest speakers included Dr. Joseph Richardson, an Associate Professor in the Department of African-American Studies at the University of Maryland, College Park.  The week’s activities were a big success!
