City Engages Youth for 'Day of Service'

The Jan. 19 event honors Inauguration Day.

Some of Alexandria’s younger residents will celebrate the presidential inauguration with a day of service.

Several city offices along with Alexandria City Public Schools, the Alexandria Redevelopment and Housing Authority and Volunteer Alexandria have organized a Jan. 19 event designed to engage youth in creating a 30-page storybook, which will then be signed by the nation's first family.

The day of service is an effort to teach Alexandria’s children the importance of giving back.

The events will run from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Nannie J. Lee Recreation Center, Charles Barrett Recreation Center and the T.C. Williams satellite office at Landmark Mall.

Activities include games, reading, dancing, discussing “service,” coloring and making a storyboard.

There are not enough words to promote and recognize all the positive things this project brings to light. The concept of giving back..of caring and compassion, is as important a skill to teach our youth as the ABC's. The future of our country is in the hands of the next generation of Everyday Heroes! Thank you from Team Dawg for such a great program!
