August Carver Connection

Director’s Message:  Summer  Camp has officially ended which can only mean one thing….BACK TO SCHOOL!  I hope all of our staff and students enjoyed their much needed break this summer and I hope you are excited to return!  Students’ first day back will be August 12. The G.W. Washington Carver Community Center will be closed from August 5th - August 8th for annual cleaning and maintenance.  We will resume operations on August 9th, just in time for Friday Night Done Right from 7 - 9 pm. Come on down for games, pizza, and music! And Pastor Jearlyn Dennie will be holding her annual back to school jam on August 17th. She will be giving away all kinds of FREE back to school gear for the kids, so mark that date on your calendar!  Definitely won’t want to miss that!  


Friday Nights Done Right: The Flagler Sheriff’s PAL and the Focus on Flagler Youth Coalition have teamed up to bring Friday Nights Done Right to the Carver Community Center!  Friday Nights Done Right is a free event for Flagler Youth on the second Friday of every month. This event is designed to give our youth something fun and positive to do on a Friday night. Stop in for games, free pizza, snacks and sodas on Friday August 9th from 7-9 pm!  


Road to Success Program:  The RTS Youth Program has reached 208 GEDs to-date, with a 97% success rate.   This month we have student interns working at Flagler Youth Center, Southern Insurance Associates, East Coast Gym and Flagler Humane Society.  Recently students completed resume writing by Career Source, “Know the Law” presented by DJJ, Wells Fargo conducted financial and banking workshops, students worked one on one with DSC representatives, and National Guard completed an overview for students on military options.
