According to a study of youth in shelters, nearly 50% reported intense conflict or physical harm by a family member as a major contributing factor to their homelessness. When youth leave the home in conflict situations they are desperate to support their daily needs. Help support Run Hope Work with a tax-deductible gift to provide a pathway to financial security for youth at high risk of causing or being victimized by violent incidents. Your donation of $100 will provide steel toe work boots, hard hat, safety goggles and safety vest for two trainees during Run Hope Work's next training cycle. Visit our website www.runhopework.org/help/ to donate!
This week Brave Heart Entrepreneurial Youth Camp in partnership with the U.S. Dream Academy provided an introduction to entrepreneurship and the Entrepreneurship Club for Dream Academy Scholars.
The Entrepreneurship Club will kick off in the New Year. We are excited to continue our over 4 year partnership with the Dream Academy. We are especially thankful to the team that runs the U.S. Dream Academy DC Center.
Youth entrepreneurship education matters and we are glad we can support and serve our youth through committed partnerships.

For the second year, Artivate was asked to create centerpieces for the Montgomery County Executive's Ball held on December 3rd. Female inmates at the Montgomery County Correctional Facility created paper maché centerpieces in partnership with Project Youth ArtReach (PYA), a core program of Artivate. Under the guidance of lead artist, Carien Quiroga - Teaching Artist, and PYA director, Claire Schwadron, the women used ribbons to symbolize art as the heart-beat and rhythm of the community, with pops of color representing sparks of creativity. PYA provides visual, literary and performing arts programs for court-involved youth and adults in correctional settings.

President Clinton often credits his Georgetown experience as critical to his political success. Georgetown’s mission of public service inspired a number of other alumni who contributed to that success through their work on President Clinton’s campaign and administration. #Clinton25 via Georgetown Institute of Politics and Public Service
What is a Temporary Protected Status (TPS)?: Although over 300,000 persons from 10 countries benefit from this humanitarian relief established in the 1990s, the program is now facing TERMINATION, stripping our communities of legal status and tearing livelihoods. DC is home to many TPS holders, and while DC City Council introduced a Resolution this week in support of the program, there remains MUCH MORE real action to be done.
Check out this video by UndocuBlack Network, TPS Alliance / Alianza TPS National Day Laborer Organizing Network & Central American Resource Center (CARECEN-LA) where they break it all down. We have to urge our local legislators to pressure DHS for: 1. Extension of country protections and 2. A permanent solution. Will you help?
