BPD Teen Police Academy Students Get Hands-on to Learn Life Skills

The members of the Teen Police Academy have been hard at work this week. Despite the hot and muggy temperatures, the teens were outside bettering their community, working hard, and most importantly, learning. On Tuesday, the Teen Police Academy students partnered with the Urban Farming Institute to groom and manicure a plot of land along the Melnea Cass Bike Path in Lower Roxbury. The next day, the kids were right back out there for a hands-on lesson from Home Depot employees on how to build a kitchen.
