Together as 1: Teens & Police Officers
Our teens recently held an event called “The National Law Enforcement Project” hosted by the Santa Monica Keystone Leadership Group. The event allowed teens, police officers, and administrators to come together for fellowship, career opportunities, and to discuss issues confronting adolescents in our community.
A huge success, this event included workshops, role reversal scenarios and culminated in a riveting, fun, and exciting Teens vs. Officers basketball game!
"We get to stay at a cool place with fun programs and fun people. We can finish our homework and then after we get to play fun games. Boys & Girls Club is a really fun place!!"
