Dist IV COPS & JLC Mentoring Youth Enrichment & Mentoring Program Hosts Halloween Event

The District IV Community Oriented Policing Section and JLC Mentoring Youth Enrichment and Mentoring Program partnered up to giveaway Halloween treats to the Oxon Hill community outside of the District IV police station.

 Over 130 bags of Trick-or-Treat candy was given away to numerous happy kids from the community.  The JLC Youth Enrichment and Mentoring Group, which is headed by Mr. Joseph L. Chaney, gives the youth support that many of them need and mentor relationships that connect them with reliable adults who can offer them opportunities to learn about the world of work, earn money, build a sense of worth and make lifelong friendships.  The mentoring group meets at the District IV/Oxon Hill Police Station Community Room each and every Saturday at 10:00 a.m.

JLC Youth Enrichment and Mentoring Program has many success stories.  Young men and women who have turned the corner to become hard working college students, with successful careers and goals, some who have taken jobs that are a stepping stone to something greater.  These youth have become a team of positive young men and women who work together and support each other to be successful.
