Ceremony tonight will celebrate local youth projects


Dozens of youth who have launched projects to improve the community as part of The Potential Project are set for a celebration tonight.

The community is invited to discover the positive impact the kids have had in a short time from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Living Hope Neighborhood Church, 2800 Rheem Ave.

As part of what is becoming an annual program, Living Hope Neighborhood Church funded 21 student projects this year. Projects were launched at Downer Elementary, Peres Elementary, Leadership Public Schools, Making Waves Academy, Richmond High School, Kennedy High School, the Richmond Youth Leadership Council, and Garden of Peace Ministries.

We recently reported on several projects launched by Peres Elementary students. See them here in this video:

All of the groups will be showcasing their projects at this open-house style celebration, Pastor David Clark said.

“We will also have a short program beginning at 6 p.m.,” Clark added.

An Eventbrite link for the celebration is here.
