On August 11, eight teens completed the City’s Peers on the Way to Everlasting Rediscovery (POWER) program.
During the 10 week program, teens worked throughout the community completing projects with the SCV Senior Center, the Community Gardens at Central Park, the Graffiti Task Force and the City’s Parks division.
City employees also mentored participants and served as role models, providing input on career planning, networking, professionalism and managing responsibilities.
The teens also participated in 3 day/2 night youth leadership camp at Lake Castaic State Recreation area, educational trips to the Museum of Tolerance and University of Southern California (USC).
