Youth at Hopkins Apartments had a creative way to spend their Spring Break.

The Hopkins Apartments Resident Council hosted a Spring Break Youth Program during the last week of March to keep the neighborhood kids engaged and inspire them to keep their minds active.

At the start and end of each day in Hopkins’ Resident Council Office, the children gathered into the “Circle of Love, Light, and Hope” and used positive words to describe their day, while learning to listen and respect those who are speaking. Guest speakers visited, mock elections were held to teach the children about the importance of voting, poetry workshops, painting, and more filled their days. In addition, the group also visited the National Museum of African American History and Culture.

At the end of the week, there was a presentation where the children showed off their artwork and completed in an essay contest. They also read poems they had written in class, which were combined to create a booklet for them to take home.
