Recently, the youth were surprised with a Hibachi themed Family Day, COVID-19 edition. The youths’ families sent in heartwarming videos giving them various, yet still positive messages to the youth. Ms. Johnson fixed meals on the grill and talked about “Hibachi Express”. Not only did everyone savor the taste of the prepared food, but we were completely entertained by the family videos.

We continued our Monthly Social Incentive and chose six youth who were improving in all areas of the program. These youth chose to be rewarded with ice cream and Nachos. Not only did we hand out rewards, but we also congratulated one of our youth who received his high school diploma. 

We also congratulated Mrs. Robinson who graduated with her bachelor’s degree in criminal justice, and Mr. Scott who graduated with his master’s degree in criminal justice as well.

We all celebrated Memorial Day. Ms. Adelson prepared a “Build Your Own Hot Dog” luncheon for the youth. The youth really enjoyed this year’s Memorial Day celebration.
