FLOC is celebrating a milestone this year: fifty years of serving disenfranchised youth in Washington, DC. This is a milestone that few organizations reach and FLOC owes much of this success to those who came before us and our own community. Our students and families have always been on the forefront of what we do.
This past weekend, twenty two Leaders In Action students from Charles Town and Harpers Ferry Middle Schools visited the Outdoor Education Center (OEC) to focus on gardening. This was the first time some of our students have explored the OEC, as they are new to our Leaders
Moving from the global scale to the local, the Outdoor Education Center’s Leaders in Action have had quite the adventure during their last couple of months of the program.
End of the year celebrations highlight the importance of relationship building on children’s progress. Throughout the school year, each week our students gather with their individual ttuors to drive into math and or language curricula with the goal of student achievement
On may 1st FLOC will host its 12th annual Beyond the Classroom Fundraising Breakfast. This event allows our board members volunteers, supporters, and community partnres to come together to celebrate and hear first-hand stories of how our students have been imacted by our work.
When we see that our students excelling in the classroom, we love to celebrate! Morgan Welch, Bilingual recruitment and outreach coordinator, created a dislpay showcasing students from the Neighborhood Tutoring Program and Scholars Program who received Honor Roll.
