Another Great Partnership

Tuesday, March 2nd, 2010

Yachad reached out to the Latin American Youth Center for this President’s We the People project in an effort to continue our work with not only homeowners but other non-profit organizations and community centers. With the help of nearly 20 Yachad volunteers, we paintied rooms, benches and hallways through out the center’s main building. The LAYC Family of Organizations is a network of youth centers, charter schools, and social enterprises with a shared commitment to helping youth become successful and happy young adults, with the skills they need to succeed educationally, professionally, and personally. The building that was worked on was home to the organization’s offices, a charter school and a community center.

Yachad will be doing even more work with LAYC come May when University of Maryland’s Hillel will be sponsoring and repairing the transitional housing residences LAYC runs in Columbia Heights.
