TEEN OUTREACH PROGRAM - 2009 Graduation - Lompoc Boys & Girls Club

The Lompoc Boys & Girls Club graduated 71 students from their intense 26 week TEEM OUTREACH PROGRAM. 120 youth started the program.

This program - did for 71 kids exactly what you did with all the youth you met as a police officer. You would have been very proud of this group.

The program is focused on:

-Promoting successful achievement in schools and decrease negative outcomes.
-Helping young people develop life skills.
-Giving young people a sense of purpose by contributing to their communities through
20 hrs. of community service.
-Value young people as assets and resources.
-Forging strong community wide partnerships.
-Connecting learning gained through service experiences during Clubhouse activities.

The ceremonies were conducted in the RICHARD MAY COURT. The gym dedicated to Officer Richard May during 2008. During the evening, the Richard May Court Floor marker, donated by his father, was unveiled. Pictures are below.
