Youth on the Move "Paint the Town"!

If you happen to pass the corner of Farrington Ave & Farrington Place in Peoplestown, you will see precisely how Youth on the Move has left its mark! It has been an eventful year for students in Youth on the Move, our out-of-school time program for middle and high school students. From community service at our local senior center, to countless hours of academic tutoring and engagement in a variety of enrichment activities including dance classes, this year’s participants can also add ‘muralists’ to their resumes.

With the support of the Director of Education Services, Ann Fowler, and the Program Manager, Rakia Reeves, students added a pop of color to their neighborhood by completing a gorgeous community beautification project. As the spring semester ends, our students can look to this beautiful final project as a visual representation of the many colorful experiences that made up another successful academic year at Emmaus House.
