Youth Passion Statements
This summer, DC youth have the opportunity to participate in our “Ignite Your Power Within” summer program. During this six week program, high school youth have served as camp leaders to our middle-school aged youth. One of the activities that the youth engaged in was the formation of their “passion statements”. Each youth were encouraged to consider what their dreams, values and skills.
