BPD in the Community: We Belong - Youth Through Leadership Program Visits Washington D.C.

BPD in the Community: On Wednesday April 17, 2019, members of the BPD boarded a bus bound for Washington D.C. with a group of thirteen area youths to begin a four-day trip focused on civic engagement. The trip was planned as part of the We Belong: Empowering Youth Through Leadership Program which was established to help young people succeed by connecting them with civic leaders, nonprofit and business executives and elected officials. For their first group activity, they went to enjoy a Washington Nationals game which was played in honor of Black Heritage Day at Nationals Park. We look forward to seeing what adventures await as their week goes along. Enjoy your time in our nation’s capital and be safe!
